Religion in Politics

I'm just so tired of the election already and I'm tired of opponents attacking or questioning each other's religious beliefs. Everybody is worried about Romney being a Mormon, Fred Thompson had his faith questioned because he hasn't mentioned Jesus enough, Iowa voters were told to vote for Huckabee over Brownback because Huckabee is one of us. And now Louisiana Democrats accuse Bobby Jindall of disrespecting Protestants.

Who on Earth would really want to run for anything greater than dog catcher in this country when you have to deal with all this crap?

What was worse than those things you listed was watching the democratic candidates Sunday trying to answer questions about their faith and praying.

A couple of them almost seemed uncomfortable and panicky.

it's pretty shameless and shallow isn't it?

the last decade politicians were so dismissive of President Bush's Christian faith and even poo-pooed it. After losing those elections now they are all trying to be "more Christian" than the others. And to make it worse, the msm has done a fantastic job of being waaaaay over concerned with the faith of the candidates - after they, too, were so dismissive and looked down on such matters the past few elections.

They all end up looking like such dummies

About Me

My photo
Catholic and politically conservative, I graduated with a BA in History (concentration in American) and Political Science. I'm between two parishes; one in Wisconsin that is fairly traditional, and one in Illinois that is fairly liberal. I teach CCD. I work in the food service industry, which basically means I'm working in fast food until I find a better job. I'd like to work for the church somehow. Right now I'm working on getting my teaching certification, although I'm unsure thats the correct path for me. This blog is as random as I am. I hope you enjoy.
