    I voted "It has some influence," because if a candidate seemed that he or she might be making decisions based on a series of moralistic fairy tales, I might be less inclined to vote for him or her.

    I did, I made several posts. Defending the validity of my religious beliefs had nothing to do with that or the thread. Do keep on topic.

    Re: Does religion affect your vote?

    As an atheist I tend to naturally vote for people who value secularism in government. I don't really care about their private beliefs or lack thereof. All I care about is where they stand on the issues that matter to me. Obviously, the more secular their stances are, the higher the chances of them getting my vote are. A surprising amount of religious politicians have gotten my vote over the years due to their ability and willingness to keep their faith out of politics.

    That is how i tend to vote. i do stay away from those that express to many religious views so I guess in that way it does influence me some. Most candidates I vote for really are atheistic anyway.

    My sentiments exactly except I switch around anti-secularist for secularist and religion for secularist. If you get what I mean.

    I will continue to stand up for our ancient society, institutions and traditions against the ravages of secularism and atheism and I make no bones about it, I'm proud of the fact.
    And heres what I dont get about you. Why is something automatically worth preserving just because its ancient and/or traditional and/or and insitution? Afterall alot of them are at best extreamly silly and at worst offensivly chauvinist.
