Should all students of political science be required to take courses in comparative religion ?

I think so. I think students of leadership studies should study comparative religion as well. Everything is connected.

The problem is whose perspective would be taught. For ex, what passes for typical theology of Christianity in universities nowadays is a gross misrepresentation of biblical Christianity, so teaching that could end up causing more confusion that clarification. I've noticed the same thing in other anthropology/sociology/political science type courses. I remember in college there was a big whig supposed expert on Africa, one country in particular. Then after graduation when I actually was living in that African country, that professor came through the country and was clueless and a total joke. At a minimum individuals should study the major religions from their own texts and authorities and use discernment when receiving instruction from any "experts."
