Why Does Religion Play in Important Part in American Politics? Why would a persons faith affect the vote. I thought America was a secular society accepting of people of all faiths. Isn’t that what American prinicples stand for?
I wrote this after seeing many blogs where Barak Obama said his faith was muslim and thereafter Christian. I don’t think faith matters but the ideals of the person matter. If he was a Muslim maybe he’d be the ideal person to build some peaceful bridges between America and some of its enemies?
God Knows best.
