Should religion be a factor in the 2008 Presidential campaign? Do the religious beliefs of Republican Vice President nominee Sarah Palin make a difference to you one way or another in your determination of whom to elect as President of the United States of America? Well, apparently it does to some.
Today's Roland Hansen Commentary contains a "guest opinion" providing some "food for thought" in that the religious views of Sarah Palin are brought into question.
"A candidate's personal religious beliefs generally are not of public concern, but when those views could potentially motivate the candidate to take actions that would be contrary to the national interest, the public has a right to know what that person believes."
That is just one sentence in the Opinion - Editorial: A heartbeat away.
With all the attention that has been given to Barack Obama and his religion, I cannot help but wondwr why the same scrutiny hasn't been applied to Sarah Palin.
I wonder how many people even pay attention to the question of the role played by Sarah Palin's religious beliefs in the performance of her duties as an elected official, past, present, and future.
