    I am not spurred by the religious beliefs of the candidate. If I could support their political platform then I would be willing to vote for them regardless of religion

    Many people do not equate Christians and Catholics as they have very different doctrines.
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    Then many people are wrong. If anything, Catholics are more Christian than any other denomination, considering that Catholicism is the Apostolic Church.

    Used to be, but that is another debate for another thread.

    Re: Would you vote for a president that was not a christian?

    In all honesty, I wouldn't vote for a Muslim.

    I wouldn't vote for someone who associates himself with a religion that has, in my opinion, caused so many human rights violations and violent acts around the world. Honor killings, oppression of women, death penalty for gays, etc.

    I know someone is going to respond by saying that there are plenty of "liberal Muslims" but honestly, I think that's just a guilt thing. I think they know that a lot of Islam is morally wrong, but they feel guilty so they still pretend to practice it. It's the same with so called "cafeteria Catholics". The thing is, if you actually truly believe, you would believe that having a gay lifestyle, for instance, would cause you to have eternal damnation. It's doublethink. I do not want a President that practices either practices doublethink or supports human rights violations.

    Christianity is also a violent religion. This is the same religion that caused the holocaust, crusades, and the inquisition.
