    Would you vote for this person?

    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 scientologist, would you vote for him?

    Yes no problem. I don't care what religion he is as long as he is good to the people and does what he says.

    Hmm ... if he had my exact political beliefs, he'll also value secularism so sure.

    That pretty much says it all. If his beliefs are the same as mine, then what do I care what his religion is?

    I don't know about that, Scientology is probably one of the craziest cults I've heard of.

    Being a member of it indicates, at least to me, that he is not very smart.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Sure, religion should have no play in who is elected imo.

    Any religion that is not of a particular persons religion is considered a cult and are considered "crazy" also.

    A persons religion is no indicator if someone is smart or not.

    Nope.

    Read the history of Scientology for a deeper understanding of crazy.

    It was created by a very questionable person about 60 years ago.
