I read yesterday about this. Apparently, he has a staff of people sending material and calling people of faith to tell them Obama relies on his faith. Perhaps Romney has something similar.
I wish it were not necessary to make going to church a photo op or spending campaign money to tell people about your churchiness. We all know its part of the deal.
I wonder if it will always be so in the U. S.? Religion seems to have slipped off the map in some other Western democracies. And, those countries seem to be doing just fine without it.
I watch parts of TV debates of candidates for office in southern States. In those debates, is seems like candidates spend more time talking of their individual godliness than policy questions. That being the case, we should resign ourselves to religion in U. S. politics for a long to come.
For people who fear the religion of Islam, I’d suggest they try to show how Christianity is different from the onerous branches of it. They could do this by supporting separation of church and state.
One of the people I’m supporting for Congress always ends her political talks with the standard, “God bless you and God bless the United States of America.” It’s a coded way of saying the U. S. has some special thing going with God that no other country has.
I think it would be fun to organize a response where the crowd would reply in unison, “And pox on everyone else and every other country.”
