Voting and Religion
The notion you should ignore religious beliefs when voting is foolish. These beliefs are highly relevant.
~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:69)
- Every extra delusion the candidate carries, the less capable they are of doing their job.
- If the candidate harbours end-times fantasies, he may well deliberately start a nuclear war, hoping to get a lunch date with Jesus.
- Religion imposes many backward ideas on adherents about the status of women, contraception, abortion, the status of gays, protection of the environment, the advancement of science…
- There is also the matter of gullibility. If a candidate is gullible enough to belief obvious religious falsehoods, how can he possibly have the wit to tell when other leaders are lying to him.
