    Don't you love it when your question is also the answer?

    I would strongly oppose it. To the degree that if religious laws started being passed and enforced, I would leave the country.

    We are a nation with many Christians not a Christian Nation.

    Which brings up an interesting question:

    Where's the line between having your religion inform your politics and writing religious laws?

    Why does there have to be a line? People try to enforce their moral beliefs on others all the time. Environmentalists are a good example.

    I voted "Oppose" rather than "Strongly Oppose" for one reason only; that NO religion should be an official religion, not just Christianity.

    I vote "oppose" over "strongly oppose" .. because I think the word "strongly" doesn't matter.

    Would not be supportive of this on a national level. Wouldn't really support it at a state level either, but would have less of an issue with it there. Even if was nominal in it's application it still would be a fundamental transformation of the governing principles the country was built on.

    Absolutely not. We do not need (and hopefully do not collectively want) an official religion.

    Totally unconstitutional. Not a chance and I'm a Christian.
