    Well...let's see....they have virtually banned religion in any form in the public school system. They have attempted to ban religion at all government buildings. I am not claiming that all dems fall along those lines however an enormous number of them do. Personally I don't think they understand the first amendment.

    Banning and protecting the 1rt amendment are two different things. When you use the word [i[banning[/i] as you do, it inclines me to believe that you are taking the evangelical Christian understanding to the question.

    They've also largely banned Islam from the public school system, and from government buildings. Ditto that for Buddhism. You're just one of those "Holy Grail half empty" type people.

    Seems to me that Catholics and Jews are overwhelmingly Democrat. Racist religious groups such as Farrakhan's Nation of Islam, Wright's United Trinity and the AME church are almost exclusively Democrat voters.

    On the other hand, Mormons and Evangelical Christian denominations seem to be almost exclusively single-issue Republican voters because of the Dems' pro-abortion stance.

    I don't agree. I am a conservative independent. I do not vote party. I vote philosophy....in effect I vote for the specific candidate. If democrat Zell Miller, a conservative were running in my district, he would likely get my vote...depending on who he was running against. The republican party these days, at least establishment republicans are more leftwing-lite then conservative. They do vote on and pass a conservative platform at convention time.....and they certainly do send out mailers in the form of surveys that look conservative, however they govern more as moderates. They fear the media and their big donors more then their own constituents. They are just the lesser of two evils.

    No......I am just a believe in the first amendment to the US constitution. I believe that if a student in a public school wants to say a prayer when class is not in session...he/she should be allowed to do so. If a student or teacher wants to possess a bible in the classroom, they should be allowed to do so. And while I am okay with organized prayer in school, I don't suggest that everyone be forced to participate in it. The left just does not understand the first amendment and the perceived separation of church in state. It was never meant to ban religion anywhere. It was meant to protect religious freedom as well as not force people into religion. It was meant to keep us from becoming a clerical state where one religion is official and all must participate.

    Re: Republicans, Democrats, Religion

    I didn't vote in the poll as I rarely vote for either party anymore, I usually just vote Libertarian/Green now. Left the Democratic Party in 2010 and never looked back. As for my religious views? I am a deist.

    In my experience, plenty of Democrats/Libertarians/Greens are religious despite their social views because they respect the 1st and 14th amendment.

    I lean left and am not religious.

    You seem to be unable to grasp the excessive conflicts your ideology would create living in a society as diverse as we are.

    What ideology are you referring to? I am touting the correct interpretation of the first amendment. What are you touting? Political correctness?
