    A president being a Mormon would not bother me.

    We ostensibly still have separation of church & state. A president's religion should be irrelevant. We elect a political leader, not a priest.

    No different than having a Roman Catholic president. (JFK). As long as the country comes first and not the doctrine of their false religion.

    So, if you normally vote Republican and he's the guy on their ticket, you'd vote for him(?)

    It has nothing to do with being Mormon, I would not vote for him because he has no moral compass, and adjusts moral issues for votes. The last thing we need is a pseudo-conservative pandering Christian votes.

    But if that's the case, why did so many of the Religious Right vote for Bush?

    I wonder if you would be such a smart alec to my face as you are behind the anonymity of your computer screen. I think not. You are a typical liberal-like cyber coward.

    I guess I am in the minority here, but I wouldn't vote for a Mormon. IMO nothing would greater influence people in further legitimizing this cult. I think it would do a lot of harm, to the true Gospel message in this country. The Mormons have been making a lot of headway in portraying themselves as just another Christian denomination. Having a Mormon as President of the country would really be a big boost for them in that direction. How many more people would be influenced by this that might have at one time taken pause thinking that there was something to be leery about, but now wouldn't? I just couldn't vote for him.

    I don't think I'll vote for this mormon, but I'll base it on his performance in Massachusetts more than his faith.

    How would I feel about voting for a nonpracticing member of a faith he likely couldn't even describe? <shrug> Same old, same old.

    In reality that is probably what we do get much of the time. I don't know about anyone else, but I don't really have any standard of religion that one must have before I vote for them as president. But there are certain beliefs that if a candidate were strongly involved in, that would make me not want to vote for them. Mormon is one of them for the reasons I mentioned before.

    I would like to ask a question for all those that said they would vote only based on qualifications. There is a candidate that meets what you would believe as good qualifications for the job, better in your opinion than anyone else running. But this person was a self proclaimed Satanist, would you still vote for him? What about atheist, Wiccan, were would you draw the line?

    Depends. Are we talking a "Hey look at me I'm different and wierd" person or an actual practicing Satanist plotting my demise?

    I agree with this rationale. Way too many have become confused by the false claims of these people. I'd rather the mormons remain marginalized as much as possible.

    There is no doubt about it, I can take care of myself. Really, throughout the years, I cannot recall a time having a problem with that. My posts really do not reflect a liberal viewpoint. On the contrary, those who blindly march in step to a pseudo-conservative have no idea what they are. Anyway, thanks for the name, and tell Mr Dead Poet I said hi.
