"We on planet earth, learned long ago that the separation of the religious from the political is a requirement for a civilized society".

This is unfortunate.

There will be lots of injustice as you will never be able to find answers to political questions like:

A) Why marry, why not live together or everyone do sex with everyone else? Why not gay/lesbian marriages? If you use your head and do not use religion to purify your laws, you will allow everything and the outcome of this injustice will be AIDS and Sexually transmitted diseases.

B) Why not interest based banking system? Why can't I take interest on money? If you will go by your head without using teachings of religion, you will allow interest and the result will be poverty and storage of wealth to few people who eat interest.

C) Similarly if you will not follow Holy Book in your daily life, sociology and wars you will end up making all kinds of actions that may appear good to you in short terms but they will harm other humans.

My love to you.
