The chapter seeks to demystify the existing relationship between religion and politics. The chapter starts with a narration that explains on how a first time visitor to America id having a hard time differentiating between a political rally and a religious gathering. The pandemonium by the first time visitor is brought about by the fact that the preacher finished with the words God Bless America. Politicians during political rallies and presidential campaigns are the ones heard uttering the words God Bless America. The narration continues to narrate that the tourists went on ranting and engaging each other in enraging debates on whether what they heard and witnessed was politically motivated or religiously inclined.
