For me it isn't so much religious beliefs, but moral stance. I, as
some of you know, am a pretty strong Mormon. However, so is Harry
Reid, and he and I are about as opposite in moral stance as one can
get. Mitt Romney is also Mormon, and is far too liberal for me,
though not as far as Reid. It is not one's beliefs that define the
person, but rather how that person acts in response to those beliefs.
Of course, this is only MHO
Obama's religion does not really concern me. Nor does McCain's. It's
what they have done with those beliefs. Can't vote for Obama. Biden
doesn't help me. Couldn't vote for McCain. Palin does help me. Is
she perfect? No. Do I agree with what I know of her moral stance?
Here's hope. McCain gets elected. Dies of a heart attack the night
after he is sworn in. Palin becomes President.
I could live with that. Better than any current alternative, anyway.

I do believe in God and that he speaks to people in various ways. When
I hear a politician saying that God speaks to him I assume that that
politician is trying to solidify the support of the religious right.
I heard an interview on NPR today that a religious conservative woman
in Colorado is voting for McCain/Palin based being more aligned with
her religious beliefs. She said that her religious beliefs come before
anything so she would vote with them.
I'm afraid that many people do the same.
