I really couldn't care less what religion the president or president elect follows. I don't practice any religion and I respect other's rights to practice any religion they choose just as much as I expect my choice not to practice be respected.
That being said, personal beliefs (based on religious values) have no business in politics. Most people who are "pro-life" will tell you that their beliefs about conception and life stem from their religious beliefs. The same goes for gay marriage. They value "traditional marriage" as it is based in their religion. HOW is that not bringing religion into politics? If you don't believe in abortion then by all means don't get one. What gives you the right to tell someone else they can't?
Furthermore, I find it absolutely hilarious that the same group of people who claim to believe in "less government" want to control individual's rights whether it be concerning abortion or marriage equality. How is creating laws (or blocking laws) that would allow people to marry someone of the same sex or abort a child in any way synonymous with "less government"?
What you really mean is, "I don't want the government to PAY for anything, but I'm okay with them telling people what to do."
That is so hypocritical it's not even funny.

42% of Christians are liberals. Get a clue.

You're a smart guy and it shows. I've said before that I'm a democrat but the true answers are probably closer to the middle. Some call it BALANCE. The republicans have become so aggressive and deceitful, that I insider THEM to be the enemy, not al-queda . I'm now opposed to everything that they are for, even if I was for it yesterday. I can't stand the local republocans. And the church people make me sick. This is the nastiest place in the world to live....and yes, I'm leaving....when Ron Ramsey has been your idiotic rep for 24 years, it's a wonder that we still have electricity. It's like stupidity is applauded. Can't stand it any further. And this booker Phillips from what? Erwin? That's where stupid was born. No offense
