    The context of the question was:

    1. How much of a member of the Christiban are you?










    Somedays I stop and ask myself if it is going to be worth the effort of chewing through the restraints.

    Another Farce/abuse of a "poll" as pure political comment.

    All 3 'choices' except none of those deeming the question objectionable.
    No option for voting that it was a an appropriate/fair question.

    If you voted none, that would mean you thought it was appropriate and fair. Tough to figure out I am sure...

    Wow, lot's of straw in this thread.

    Bottom line, when a presidential candidate uses a personal belief in campaign speeches, he/she is going to be questioned on it. Obama very publicly annointed the Rev. Wright as a spiritual mentor and being the most influential man in his life. Well, you bet your bippy public opinion was then focused on Rev. Wright, which brought to light Rev. Wright's very controversial issues and a great many controversial topics... as it should have been.

    The voting public needs to know if you think whitey needs to be slapped down, don't you think? If Obama was going to bring Rev. Wright's teachings into the whitehouse, then I for one sure as hell wanted to know.

    This situation is no different at all.

    So, we the question fair? Was it appropriate? Was it sexist? You can choose more than one.
    Given that she expressed the opinion that women should be submissive to their husbands, yes, it's a totally appropriate question. Moreover, it was not answered. Were Bachman to be elected president, just who would hold the reins of power?

    Given her answer, I'm still not sure, are you?

    What's Not tough to figure out is this was another BS 'poll' which was a statement NOT a poll.

    A vote for 'none' would NOT necessarily mean you thought it was fair.
    You could have disliked the question for a 4th reason or had.. another opinion altogether.
    It would NOT mean you thought it was an appropriate question.

    ONE simple option of 4 (or 5) saying "it was proper" or "fair" would have made it a Poll, if still lopsided.
    As it stands, it's a Farce and another one of those heads-I-win/Tails-you-lose 'polls'.

    You are confused, and wrong, and off topic.

    I think it was absolutely appropriate to ask. She's given people legitimate reasons to be concerned about it. Back when Kennedy was running, people were concerned that he'd be overly open to control by the Pope. He never said anything, to my knowledge, to lead people to think that, it was simply something on people's mind. Bachmann, however, brought it up. It's entirely appropriate that people should be concerned that she might let her ridiculous religious beliefs get in the way of a potential job she might have and reject her as a candidate on that basis.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    candidates who flaunt their Christian faith make their faith fair-game.
