"Another thing, when you are talking about government do not bring religion into this. It just doesn't work, mainly inpart because if you are, lets say Catholic, then the mormons, jews and protestants aren't going to like you. Mainly inpart because of your views on certain issues, and what you would do with them(not the people). I'm not saying that everyone who is a different religion is like that, but most are." -Riva Iron-Grip This is the biggest load of bull#$^# I have EVER heard in my life, and living in Michigan, I've heard a lot. (John Engler and Michael Moore's entire careers, to start.) The idea of people disliking others because of their religions is absurd. I am Catholic, and I have NEVER met a Jew or Mormon I didn't get along AND who I didn't enjoy political and religious discourse with. And I've met quite a few of each. My roommate is Jewish, and he's one of the best friends I've ever had (except when the Oakland A's are on TV). The only Protestant I met who I didn't at least get along with decently is an ex-girlfriend who dumped me because of my religion. In fact, the majority of people I don't get along with are OTHER CATHOLICS, particularly a couple ones in my church. These facts by themselves proves that people do not judge others by religious pretexts. I think that a FAR better way to put that paragraph would be as follows: "Another thing, please do not bring religion into this. Doing so implies that religion has a major influence in politics, which is something that the Founding Fathers went out of their way to avoid. It's fine to have your views influenced by religion, but you should have other reasons to believe what you believe as well. Additionally, it doesn't work because many people are idiots and use religion as, to use the words the media have been using to describe Supreme Court nominations, a "litmus test" and an acceptable form of complete judgement. Most people are not like that concerning religion, but a few select morons are." That sound any better to anybody? **Prepares for the flames to begin.
