Hillary and Religion
An article by Motherjones.com writes about Hillary's faith and how it effects her political beliefs. It describes her as being a part of a "secretive religious group that seeks to bring Jesus back to capitol hill." It mentions that she was questioned about how she managed to handle her husbands affair, and at this she replied, that her strong grounded faith help her through this devastating time. To me it seems that people are putting too strong an emphasis on the importance of religion in office. They waste way too much time criticizing the candidates when they can otherwise be putting their efforts towards reporting other things.
To me, as long as a candidate has some type of belief in something or other, that seems like enough. One should not have to go into the intricacies or religion and delve into whether one is Catholic, Protestant, Evangelical, etc and for what reasons. As long as they have a belief system that will help them with their jobs, but not be too influential in policy, then I believe that is sufficient enough.
