- Some readers wondered about the way the question was worded.
Other readers wondered why we asked the question at all.
Most readers agreed that politics and religion should be separate.
- Religion and politics should not be mixed by anyone who paid attention during civics class. The right not to have religion forced on you is why the separation is there. Period. Religion is not excluded anywhere but in affairs where it should not intrude and pollute the political process. That is the poison of those who claim that "religion" has a factor in politics now.
- It's really not all that important to me at all. If the President is doing a good job running the country his religion shouldn't be an issue. It's nice that we have a Christian President and it's really good that he is understanding of people of all religions. I'm all for separation of church and state.
Another concern was a president pushing his or her own beliefs.
Finally, a few readers said religion was an important factor in how they'd vote.
