Religion has been a major and hot topic among Republican presidential contenders. It also was a major topic in the 2008 campaign.
What do YOU want to know about a presidential candidate’s faith? What do you NOT want to know?
It is important for me that an elected leader be a person of faith. If the candidate is a Christian, I prefer that s/he be active in a local congregation. (I realize that for the President this presents some challenges.) If Jewish or Muslim, I prefer that s/he be active in communal expressions of the faith. I look for a congruence between belief and personal lifestyle. While important, a candidate’s faith will not be the determining factor in my vote.
