I just got thinking about this today and was wondering what you all thought. It seems to be a big deal and yet I see so many comments on how we should not judge a person based on their religious beliefs. I don't really want to focus on one particular person or a particular religion. What are your opinions on this topic?

Because people fear what they don't understand. If they believe lies and propaganda about certain religions or lack there of, that ignorance is going to leak over into their decision making in the voting booth.

For me, I don't care what a candidate believes as long as he or she is smart enough to keep those beliefs personal and not try to create public policy with them. Case in point: during the last elections, my area had several candidates state in commercials and during speeches that they wanted to "return our country to its Judeo-Christian roots". That sort of talk scares me. This is not a Christian nation. It is a secular nation. We do not want or need a theocracy. If the candidate wants to spend an hour each morning praying to one god, many gods, or not spend any time in prayer at all, it matters not at all to me, as long as it's on his or her own time and he or she isn't trying to impose his or her beliefs on the rest of us.
