A new poll shows that while most Americans would not refuse to vote for a Jewish or Catholic candidate based solely on his/her Judaism/Catholicism, many still would never under any circumstances vote for a Muslim or a Mormon.
For my part, I believe that the sooner evangelical Protestantism dies out in America, the better off we shall be and the better off the world as a whole shall be. (I’m not holding my breath.) But I might well vote for an evangelical candidate, or not, depending on what effect his/her religion has on his/her politics. Jimmy Carter, for instance, was well worth voting for.
What do you think?
