    Default Hey Spider and others indifferent to religion

    This is going on in your country!


    Religion has become such a common element of presidential politics that during the first televised debate among the 2008 Republican candidates, a reporter asked if any did not believe in evolution ? three Republicans raised their hands: Kansas Sen. Sam Brownback (news, bio, voting record), former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and Colorado Rep. Tom Tancredo.

    "To many Americans, religion is a very important part of their life and they are interested in how religiosity influences candidates," said John Green, a University of Akron political science professor and senior fellow at the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life.

    "Where this election cycle is different," he said, "is that more of the Democratic candidates are speaking out about their faith, and they've organized their campaigns to appeal to religious voters."

    The difference is that the democratic candidates(Edwards,Obama,Clinton and Richardson) even with there professed belief in a higher power, still believe in a separation of church and state.

    I would like to go on record and say I could never vote for a candidate who is a creationist.

    Indeed. I wouldn't have voted for Brownback, Huckabee, or Tancredo anyway.

    Me either. Someone who says "I believe what I believe, regardless of the scientific evidence." sounds like four more years of Bush.
