    Religion is irrelevant to anyone with an IQ over room temperature.

    No, no problem with his religion. Still, I have a problem with his worldview.

    No- I have no problem with his or anyone else's religion, as long as they aren't forcing/pushing it on others.

    I so agree. As do many others, based upon the past two wins, by Romney.

    The primary has long been called for Mr. Romney, but so you may digest the official results from the Granite State:

    Romney - 94,252 - 40%.
    Paul - 54,511 - 23%.
    Huntsman - 40,388 - 17%.
    Gingrich - 22,518 - 10%.
    Santorum - 22,292 - 9%.
    Perry - 1,668 - 1%.

    Romney is the big winner - he not only increased his vote share from 2008 by over 15,000, but he got over 40% of the vote and nearly doubled his next closest opponent. Plus - he has become the first man since Gerald Ford to win both Iowa's Caucuses and New Hampshire's first in the nation primary.

    Libertarian Republican: Final Romney vote total much larger than originally reported

    I don't care about the religious beliefs of any elected official or candidate for office...

    It is not a determining factor in how I select whom I vote for....

    I agree, within reason, with Dr. House and others on this issue. If a guy is not stating sacrificing human beings as part of his religion, no one should care.
