    The majority leader of the U.S. Senate and the most senior Republican senator are two of the 15 Church members serving in the 112th United States Congress this year. The members were sworn in Jan. 5.

    In addition to Harry Reid, here is a list of the Democrats and Republicans, that have tried,or are trying,to make a difference.

    If you live in their district you may vote for a different candidate. If you do not live in their district you have no recourse. Elections are the american way.

    I don't care what their religion is. It's not like they are putting up bills that require everyone to wear magic underwear. As long as it's not forced on me they can believe whatever they want.

    But the left IS trying to make it an election issue, they will and have gone after Romney for being a Mormon. The latest thread in which they attack him on this board is about his having been a Local Bishop.

    Democrats would like to repeal the clause in the Constitution prohibiting a religious test for public service.

    IF you take the Mormons out who would you replace them with?

    Catholics, Jews, Muslims, Hindi?

    From an atheist point of view, religion just does not matter. What matters is if they are zealots!!


    Aren't you glad Santorum is not running anymore?:D
