It is for this voter. May not be for you and that's your right, but I would not vote for any one who has no home church.

Presbyterian or Episcopalian - very old money and establishment. Methodist is OK too. First Baptist or Towering Oaks are ok, skip smaller rural Baptist churches. No to Pentecostal, Evangelical, and Catholic is an absolute no-no.

I have never given any consideration to one's religious affiliation, or lack of same while voting. Why should it matter?

i have a "home church" though I haven't been in sometime. What if my platform could get this area back on trAck breath new life into agriculture and industry. Would you not vote for me on the sole reason I haven't been in a Pugh recently?

Separation of Church and State is a must!
