One thing that drives me berserk about these conversations is the deliberate unwillingness to talk about what really underlies concerns raised by people who have issues with "faithful" candidates. It's not about whether someone is religious, or what religion they are; it's about whether they plan to legislate particular religious beliefs, or, more accurately, legislate bigotry and use religion as a justification for it. "God says so" isn't a viable political argument in America, but the GOP candidates in particular (though the Dems are not exempt) seem to think it is. And that's the problem.
