Considering that Article VI states that "no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States", it certainly seems that religious beliefs are THE test that Americans want their elected officials to pass. I don't care whether Obama is a Christian, a Muslim, agnostic, or whatever. What I care about is that he is familiar with the Constitution and with protecting the rights of citizens. What I see from the GOP is a desire to impose the beliefs of the Religious Right upon all citizens, which is a frightening proposition. They really do sound like the American Taliban, especially when they are making this election about who is the most devout and most religious, and who they think will make those religious beliefs into laws that govern all citizens - Christian or not.
