    Do you vote for a presidential candidate solely on his or her stated religious "convictions"?

    For me, it's more a matter if his political positions are consistent with my Christian convictions.

    I don't vote or get involved in the process, solely on "religous convictions."

    The only time that a religious issue should be considered is when it is a moral issue. That of course would include Abortion and the homosexual issue. But I would be voting from the moral point of view, not the religious view, even though those two issues have the same stand from the moral and religious point of view.

    Now suppose, a presidential candidate came out and said he would refuse to appoint a woman because that was his religious view. Would you consider not voting for him because of that?

    Suppose a presidential candidate said that he would sign an executive order that would only allow military chaplains to use government money to purchase King James Bibles. To him, that is a religious issue.
