How can people say that the US isn't a Christian nation? It is very clear that our election process is very heavily influenced by faith. I just do not see how you can mix the two when the Constitution states we are not supposed to. I am sure this will have a lot of faithful saying I told you so and boo hoo for the non-believers, but you can't deny the feelings people get when faith issues are part of an election. This to me proves that religion is a very strong part of our government process and ideologies. The political parties in our system IMO, have discovered a way to get the votes they need.
