  • That has nothing to do with why I can't stand Palin. I like and respect many strong Christians.

  • I think her Christianity is a STRENGTH!! People don't like her because they're jealous! She's HOTT and she has BRAINS!!! That's a scary scenario for the testosterone on Capitol Hill.

  • Probably some people but I think some have other reasons having more to do with not liking McCain and since shes on the ticket she takes the heat too. I for one will back her because of it. I really want to know that they person I vote for is going to have morals and good judgement when it comes to key moral issues as well as the other issues.

  • No her religon is nothing more to be...than the tolit paper i throw away on a daily basis,

    Its her Style, and her WANT TO BE perfect attitude, But she is nothing more but a backwards woman whom needs to start reflecting a little more on her children,
    other than focusing on politics and glory,

  • Being a politician has nothing to do with her ability to be a good mother. It's a job... a career. No different than you or I (or any other WORKING mother). I work, but I'm still a great mom. Just because her job is in politics doesn't mean she's any different than any other working mom. She's not focusing on politics and glory. Politics is just a PART of her life. The GLORY is coming to her, she's not chasing it. That's what happens when you're in the spotlight due to your career.

  • I don't hate her. I don't even know her. I don't agree with her policies at all. That's why I won't vote for that ticket. I couldn't care less what religion someone is or isn't.

  • Problem for her is that she is not strong christian. She goes with the wind ,she is a populist . Sorry she does't have brains. It's time for her start learning about other countrys and world all together.

  • I don't vote for a canidate based on their religious beliefs. I base my vote on the issues and policies I care about. I am not voting for the McCain/Palin ticket because I do not agree, almost issue for issue, on their policy agenda. It is that simple. I'd elect the Pope if I thought he would advocate for the policies I think would be most benefitial for women and children.

  • I don't hate her but her being a "very strong" christian frightens me. It means she would make decisions based on her religion primarily, it also means that she is not as open minded to new or differents ideas and is quite set in her views. I think a leader has to be flexible and open minded, and also more worldly. She is not.

  • She does have brains. She's a very smart woman. Smart enough to know to NOT be a democrat! or in her constituant's case... SOCIALIST!!! Why would anybody actually vote for a man, a FATHER who voted FOR partial birth abortions? Why would anybody vote for a socialist in democrat's clothing? Why would you vote for a man who is (in essence) telling the youth of today that it's okay to NOT work and provide for yourself? If you dont' want to work, oh, don't worry! I'm a cool "democrat". Just call your local health and human services office! The government will pay for you to eat. Keep popping kids out! We'll give you more!! It's okay! Really! It's okay to be a lazy bum! We'll pay you to do that!!!
