In fact, by the population, especially right wing, insisting on religious politicians, and vetting their relgions, goes against the very Constitution
itself and for what it stands.
The religion of the elected officials and of the citizens should not be mentioned nor have any bearing on the political process whatsover.
I am tolerant of all creeds. Yet if any sect suffered itself to be used for political objects I would meet it by political opposition. In my view
church and state should be separate, not only in form, but fact. Religion and politics should not be mingled." Millard Fillmore (1809-1865) 13th U.S.
"The Government of the United States is not in any sense founded upon the Christian Religion." 1797 the treaty of Tripoli, signed by President
Washington, and approved by the Senate of the United States
"Thank God, under our Constitution there was no connection between Church and State, and that in my action as President of the United States I
recognized no distinction of creeds in my appointments office." James K. Polk
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion~The Constitution
So why citizens think the only true patriots are those that are Christian, are railing against the very standards that this country is based on, and
are nothing but hypocrites.
