I don't see where you'd be mixing them just because he's a preacher. I seriously doubt that there'd be any topics coming up in Marmet Council that would involve a conflict between the two. It's not like there are abortion clinics in town or anything like that. It would be a damn shame for the town to let someone of quality like Terry miss out on an opportunity to help guide this town because of this.Lets see Russell has a good chance but should you really mix politics and religion. My grandfather always told me not to. How many people are running for council and who? Also to many family members on council is a bad thing too.
Remember, the Constitution guarantees freedom of religion, not absence of religion. It was designed to let you worship the way you want without government telling you what to believe, not to strip you of the right to believe.
