The problem there is that different Christian sects vary widely in how political they are, no matter what the Bible says. Never underestimate the ability of a believer in a sacred book to argue away awkward parts of that book.

So one must look at fundamentalism, especially American fundamentalism, more closely -- and even a cursory glance reveals that some fundies are almost obsessively political. So one has to ask why they make a big issue out of creationism, and not vitalism.
