What about Congress?  Does it have to be all Christian, too? At present, it contains 39 Jews, 3 Buddhists and 2 Muslims.



Frankly, I don't care what religion, if any, a member of Congress follows. What matters is how well he or she represents his or her constituents regardless of his or her age, disability, gender, ethnicity, race, religion, or sexual orientation.



Suit yourself, but I will only vote for a Christian. And most Christians are like me.




I hate to break it to you Barry, but most Christians are not religious bigots.

Observably false. Thank "god".



Wrong. Many Christians would not even vote for Romney, a Mormon




Mormonism is a branch of Christianity.


The only "Christians" that wouldn't vote for someone based on their belief that a member of the Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter Day Saints is NOT a "Christian" was never a "Christian" to begin with. They're just an ill-informed voter.



And of course, the myriad other reasons not to vote For Rmoney finally sunk in to the electorate. I suspect they didn't vote for him because they'd never know WHICH VERSION of Mint they'd get.

I would have to say No. I would venture to answer in the same way if you asked if ours was a Christian nation today, No. Here is why:


Zodiacs of Our Nation’s Capital


There are 23 zodiacs in public government buildings in Washington, D.C. and many more on monuments and room interiors. The National Academy of Science has a wonderful statue of Albert Einstein overlooking a granite horoscope of the actual chart for the statue’s dedication ceremony on April 22, 1979. The Academy building also has twelve bronze stylized zodiacal characters on the south entrance hall door.


Astrological motifs appear in the Library of Congress on a clock, painted tondos (a round painting or relief) on the ceiling and a splendid marble floor in the great hall.


The Federal Reserve Board building has a beautiful 1937 Steuben glass ceiling lamp depicting the zodiac, including a version of Virgo as the Virgin Mary.


President Garfield’s memorial statue has both astrological signs and planets on the pedestal. The Mellon Memorial fountain’s rim is decorated with all twelve signs, and the Dirksen Senate office building’s interior features zodiacal characters.


The first astrological reference in the capital was the Car of History, sculpted in 1819 for the Statuary Hall. Images of Sagittarius, Capricorn and Aquarius appear on the front of the winged chariot.

I didn't vote for Romney because he is a global warming denier. Global warming is last plague #4.

The problem with Romney was that you never knew what he actually believed. He wasn't called an Etch-A-Sketch for nothing.

"When it shall be said in any country in the world, my poor are happy; neither ignorance nor distress is to be found among them; my jails are empty of prisoners, my streets of beggars; the aged are not in want, the taxes are not oppressive; the rational world is my friend, because I am a friend of its happiness: When these things can be said, then may the country boast its constitution and its government." -- Thomas Paine: The Rights Of Man (1791)

This negates your earlier claim that "most Christians are like" you. Most (American) "Christians" deny global warming even exists.



It also doesn't refute MY claim that Mormonism is a branch of Christianity.
