    My religion affects my views. As far as my votes... one Christian's as good as another, and it's not like I'm going to get any other options on that front.

    One's religion has absolutely zero effect on who I would vote for. However, if those religious views affect the candidate's positions on issues, their religion might affect who I would vote for as a result.

    As always with religion, it's not what someone believes, it's what they do with it.

    I've said before that the people on this forum have a higher IQ than the norm for our population. I think the replies on this particular thread show this, especially in light of the polls that state atheists are so mistrusted. Not one person so far has stated they would not vote for someone because they lacked a religion.

    That's not to say there aren't those who admitted religion plays a role in their decision.

    Maybe my assessment of another generation til we have an openly atheistic president is to conservative.

    I agree that it will happen within the next 50 years. I would not expect and atheist president before then though.

    Might as well. No different than voting for a Christian, from where I'm sitting.

    Doubt that will ever be a real possibility, though. Any more than I'm ever going to have the chance to vote for someone who is not a Christian or a Jew.

    I only ask because you mentioned that one Christian is as good as another in your last post. Thanks.

    I'm not Christian, myself. Just commenting on the fact that mainstream politicians must be, in order to get elected.

    Whoa! This is something that probably deserves it's own thread.


    Religion doesn't alter your personality I disagree.

    Your personality alters religion I agree.
