Just curious. It seems like in this country, in order to run it, you have to be Christian or any religion that involves Jesus and/or God. So I'm just wondering if anyone would vote for someone in office who seemed the best one for the job, but is part of the religious groups mentioned?Answer Question

Without hesitation--as long as the candidate didn't make a big issue of his/her faith. There was a candidate in my area recently who was running ads about how he believes we should "return our country to its Judeo-Christian roots". He needed say no more; he would never get my vote, simply because I think it is very inappropriate to try to sway votes based on one's personal beliefs. Besides, that statement showed a poor understanding of why our nation was founded and the fact that our Founders took great care to avoid mentioning faith or books of faith when constructing our Constitution.
It would be best of the candidates just left religion out of politics. Period.

someone's religious belief is personal, so if they had the ideas I was looking for in a candidate than I would give them my vote
