Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

WHat is the difference between ideologic axioms and religious ones.

Religious answers to policy questions also come from first principles - the religion's. Those are of course just axiomatic as your best ideology's and no more  gutfeelingly, but at least, they come from Up Above :))

(now if by chance what you call gut feeling is phrases of the type I Just Feel Jesus Loves Me, you would not find me loudly disagreeing here; I could just as well call gutfeeling the french union guy crying at the social regression as retirement age goes from 60 to 62 while life expectancy goes up 5 to 8 times more during the last 30 years;

 if OTOH this is about the existence of the spiritual string-universe, then just remember that was my starting hypothesis: I claimed this is the only difference between religion and ideology).
