Silly me..I thought we were talking about a presidential election

Please bear with me. I’ve been under the impression this is a presidential election year.

It’s becoming clear that I was wrong, and all the hoopla this year is not about electing a president, but imposing a ruling religion in America. The presidential thing is more like a side show.   

Last night Mitt Romney said that President Barack Obama's administration has "fought against religion" and sought to substitute a "secular" agenda for one grounded in faith.

The attacks piled on yesterday when Rev. Franklin Graham, the son of evangelist Billy Graham and a prominent evangelical leader in his own right, said he couldn't say for certain that Obama is a Christian.

It looks like Christianity will be the rule of the land if someone like that sanctimonious snake Santorum is elected.

The Rabid Right will take take of all of those other “non-religions” like the Mormons, Buddhists, Hindus, Muslims (especially Muslims), Jews, and others with contrary views.

But here’s the thing…aren’t we supposed to be electing a president who represents ALL religions…and ALL Americans?

Someone who can follow our Constitution’s instructions to separate Church and State? So, why all the talk about religion with these candidates?

Instead of talking about theology and/or ideology, these candidates need to talk about real things like helping the economy recover from the Great Recession.
