I cant decide. I agree people should be able to think what they want. On the other hand, I worry about putting people in charge that have radical beliefs.
I agree.... Personally, it's odd to vote for anyone who believes in myths, whatever the religion.
Yep...that would explain why religion does affect public policy in Canada via the Constitution Act, while the Americans figured it out almost 100 years before that.
You're absolutely correct.... we haven't got it figured out quite yet.... hopefully we will one day.
In notes for his June 8, 1789, speech introducing the Bill of Rights, Madison indicated his opposition to a "national" religion.
Now if only some people in your country would agree with you and Madison about a national religion... it seems that, in practice, this is not lived up to by a vocal minority, or maybe even a majority of people in the USA. In practice, the USA does has a national religion.
