Q/A: Can political leaders be spiritual leaders?

Many political leaders have a charisma that is beyond logic, and which is often more influential than their actual policies. So in what sense can political leaders represent spiritual authority?

Author: Tom Bandy

It explains the gap between unrealistic expectation and angry disappointment that experienced in just a single year or two for a new incumbent for political office. Political leaders are not ... and cannot ... be spiritual leaders. And it is a mistake often made when society lacks spiritual depth.
