I'm not christian so I'm not in this discussion.

Is it just me or are most people treating this election as a bigger deal than past election?
Not seeing it. I could care a less whether Romney is a Mormon and who knows what Obama really is. I'm more focused on what the next 4 yrs would look like under Obama versus Romney. I don't recall anyone that I've spoken with who gave a rat's ass about the religion of the candidates.

Please don't try to get me to make sense out of any of this religious stuff.
But I believe the idea is that worshiping the wrong god is pretty much worse than anything else, particularly if you are wearing the label christian.

And now that Obama supports abortion rights, and Romney does not, I would like to see how those fire and brimstone black churches are dealing with this whole thing.

This is a very well constructed post. Factual, accurate, then practical. I would only add African Liberation Theology to the list. Well done, Finch.

In a June 2011 Gallup poll when asked, "If your party nominated a generally well-qualified person for president who happened to be Mormon, would you vote for that person?"

Overall 22% said no -- 18% of Republicans said no, 27% of Democrats said no.

However, I strongly suspect now that the theoretical question has become an actual Obama vs. Romney question that many of those Republicans would reconsider their "no". I suspect that the Weekend at Bernie's corpse would have a pretty strong showing as the "not Obama" candidate.
