15 Then the Pharisees went and plotted together how they might trap Him in what He said. 16 And they sent their disciples to Him, along with the Herodians, saying, "Teacher, we know that You are truthful and teach the way of God in truth, and defer to no one; for You are not partial to any. 17 "Tell us then, what do You think? Is it lawful to give a poll-tax to Caesar, or not?" 18 But Jesus perceived their malice, and said, "Why are you testing Me, you hypocrites? 19 "Show Me the coin used for the poll-tax." And they brought Him a denarius. 20 And He said to them, "Whose likeness and inscription is this?" 21 They said to Him, "Caesar's." Then He said to them, "Then render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's; and to God the things that are God's." 22 And hearing this, they were amazed, and leaving Him, they went away.

Most Christians I know of, in the UK at least, do not care for heavy Christian involvement in politics. Sure they would love issues like abortion to be tailored to their beliefs, however this isn't simply a religious issues.
There are atheists who still value life over 'individual choice.' And of course, the Bible warns about this . .
Most realize that there is a limited scope to which Christian politicians could really achieve a Christian society.
