Well, considering US law and the foundations of government are almost entirely Judeo-Christian
The government of the United States is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion.
So what it comes down to for me is whether or not I can trust any politician to avoid making or endorsing policy that puts a faith before any other or attempts to force a person to take a faith or violate the same.

I did. Actually, I read it several times over.

You're a Paul fan....right?

The right is trying to proselytize the constitution into an all out religious doctrine. Religion must stay out of our actual policy and remain only a civil liberty, the same way you have your favorite sports team, you have your religion or lack of. The Kentucky clerk has the freedom to have a faith, but not the freedom to enforce policy based on her subjective religious mandates. Its ironic how the Europeans came to America to escape religious persecution from the Roman Catholics, and upon arrival as soon as they found that there were people already here with different faiths or no faith, what did they do, they persecuted them. Civilization here started out Theocratic, at least in culture, became more diverse and tolerant, and now the Right wing today is trying to bring Theocracy back where it has no place.
