I just read an article that spoke about republican presidential candidate Mit Romney. The article focused on the fact that he is a Mormon and his supporters are very concerned about the Mormons church views on polygamy. Romney expressed his opposition to the practice and that it was forbidden in the 1800’s. When I finished the article my spirit confirmed what I had known for quite some time. Our country is a very religious country and customs and traditions are very important o most people in the United States. The things that bothers me about that is that it seems that for many people a candidate’s religious affiliation or lack of one determines who they will support. The candidate stand on issues and overall game plan for executing their agenda seems to hold less weight. Which recent history has shown us is not a very wise thing to do. I can’t help but wonder in a country where separation of church and state is a founding principle then why does a political candidate’s religion hold so much weight?
