    Gov. Palin doesn't believe in evolution and, like Bush, is a Christian. I know the left will cry that her beliefs is a threat to liberty and the separation of church and state but look at the first amendment and it starts out with "Congress shall pass no law...". This specifically refers to the actions that the congress can't do and that is pass a law respecting the establishment of a religion or....(you know the rest).

    Her expressing her religious beliefs is not passing a law that would bind anyone into obedience to her faith which frees anyone to have disagreeing beliefs. However, the left seems not to realize this and thinks that the personality of the president somehow influences the citizen in such a way that has almost as much power as legal law which is why they decry "separation of church and state" over the idea that a president can have or even express religious beliefs that they themselves may not want to embrace.

    Does this not say something about the mentality of our political thinking where the will and personality of the leader becomes as powerful as any law that is passed?

    I'm not sure what you're trying to say.
    1. If a presidential candidate believes in "creationism" does that disqualify him/her? Assuming that you're right about Palin, and I think Huckabee.

    2. If a candidate is a Mormon or Jewish or Muslim or Catholic, does that disqualify them? They all have different beliefs.

    3. If a candidate is pro-life, does that disqualify them?

    4. If a candidate attends church regularly, does that disqualify them?

    5. If a candidate is an atheist, does that disqualify them?

    6. Are you making the case that anyone who believes in creationism is obviously backward and stupid, and not capable to be president??


    You look at one belief and try to magnify its significance. Yet you do not make any case for how it would affect their handling the office of President.

    If she is so stupid as to not believe in evolution she should only be a candidate for president of her church bake sale committee.

    If he doesnt believe in evolution he is too superstitious and prone to believing fairy tales to be president.

    if you don't believe in evolution you should have no position of power because you have the brains of a 3 year old. evolution is proven. if you want to argue how life started on earth then that is a different thing.

    Because only the popular position can possibly be right.

    I heard that 80% of statistics are made up on the spot, but I believe the person telling me just pulled that number out of the air (or wherever).

    Evolution is misrepresented in schools.
    Politicians' viewpoints are misrepresented by the media.
    Politicians claim positions they don't support to get elected.

    I wonder what the truth is in this case?
