I am no longer going to read anything else about the Tom & Jerry election. (Oops. I really meant the Bush-Kerry election. Really, I did.) Everything I have read since the election has basically said that Kerry did not get religious enough to win.
Last time I looked, the Constitution guaranteed "freedom of religion". (1st Ammendment) You have every right to believe and to practice your own religion. Granted, you cannot practice anything illegal (Sorry, no ceremonial coke), but you can still believe in it. That means the freedom from religion, too. You cannot force your views about religion on me. Ask any of the Jehovah's Witness people that come around my house. Especially the ones that put their foot in my door so I cannot shut it. Why would should someone become president just because they have the right religion? Think about it.
Also, ever heard of "Seperation of Church and State"? (1st Ammendment) That little clause also comes from our Constitution. Need anymore explanation?
The Constitution was designed to "establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity." (United States Contstitution) It was not meant to be used when it suits your purpose and discarded otherwise!
