Separation of church and state may be a constitutional requirement in US government. But in Election 2012 politics, religion has become an increasingly important factor.
Both President Obama and Mitt Romney are focusing on particular religious groups – Roman Catholic, Jewish, and Evangelical Christians. Mr. Romney’s religion – Mormonism – is being covered by the media like never before in US political history. (At least since the sect moved to Utah in the 19th century in order to practice its own beliefs – including, at that time, polygamy.)
Off to the side, meanwhile, is an apparent spat between the two most prominent Mormon politicians – Romney and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid – which seems to bear on their religion’s theology.
( Rest of the article found at the link. I know that this is nothing new to politics in the USA theocracy that it seems that we live in. It never fails to piss me off when headlines like this one make their way to my computer browses of the news. How much longer are these religious nuts going to keep exerting this type of bullshit into American politics ? My guess is quite some time. This article starts out with some questions about the Mormons, but it is not an exclusive article that calls Mormonism into question, it touches upon where "faith" places a major part in this particular election).
“It is proof of a base and low mind for one to wish to think with the masses or majority, merely because the majority is the majority. Truth does not change because it is, or is not, believed by a majority of the people.”
