  • I don't think politics and religion should EVER mix. If they are going to be a good leader who cares what they believe in. I think it's something they should keep to themselves.

  • No because I am a Christian and not just by name... Don't you think most real Christians will say no and non-Christians will say yes... ??? I would have reworded the question, if I were you.

  • For those who said no, why not?


    No, anon, I don't think so. I have met Christians who wouldn't dismiss someone just because they don't share the same faith. How would you have worded the question?

  • no, i would not. some issues that come up in govt. do reflect on one's moral/spiritual beliefs. certain 'social' issues like abortion. if i felt one way about abortion, due to my religious/christian beliefs, and i was considering someone who had no religious convictions, what would make me think he/she represented my concerns about abortion? just like anyone's personal convictions...it matters what personal convictions the person on the ballet has, if any. not that a non-christian would always feel differently than i would; you tend to vote for people who hold similar beliefs/convictions as yourself. when it comes down to it, voting is personal...as is convictions, christian or not. does that make sense?
