Oddly enough I disagree, religion (any religion) and democracy are contradictions, democracy is at its base "Rule of the people" and I have yet to find any religion that holds national elections for its leaders.
Giving people a vote is not democracy if those that they elect are subservient to unelected leaders, in order to have genuine rule by the people all other power gathering organisations religion being one must be relegated to a lower position.
