    If he/she followed the path of small government, more freedom, and less taxes I care not of their religion (of course, freedom of religion would be a must).

    After we certainly did not get almost any of what was advertised by the Obama campaign, I'm going to be extra paranoid the next time round. I won't trust an 'orthodox' Muslim to tell the truth of his motives; I won't trust an 'Atheist' to protect religious freedoms; and I won't trust a Christian to protect individual choice, etc., UNLESS such person not only talks the talk but has also demonstrated they he or she has walked the walk for a reasonable period of time. Without such assurance, religion could matter a great deal.

    It should have clued us all in that President Obama's campaign rhetoric was nothing even close to his lifestyle, religion, associates, words, voting record, etc., but the people were suckered in by slick oratory and a rockstar persona.

    I hope America will never be that gullible again.

    Please see the bolded parts. I think they are nearly mutually exclusive. And if by some chance he is an honest, trustworthy scientologist, then he's a "useful idiot" and I still don't want him as president.

    With that said, I might hold my nose and vote for him anyway, depending on who he was running against.

    I can't. This is important.

    No. I wouldn't vote for this person. I don't view scientology as a religion but as a very dangerous organization set up to con people out of their money.

    No way would anyone who shares my values ever have anything to do with this "religion".

    I wonder, if we rephrase the question in another poll:
    Ok lets say a guy runs for the presidency. His political beliefs are the exact same as yours, he was the governor of his state for 8 years in which the state prospered in. He is honest and trustworthy and basically great in every way.

    However for a religion he is a follower of the Egyptian sun god Ra, son of Isis, would you vote for him?
