As election season begins ...

"Values do not equal 'religion.' ... While it is indeed our religious faith that informs our values, we must remember that we are electing a president, not a pastor, priest, rabbi, imam or elder. It is a civic, not spiritual, position with secular, not sanctifying, duties. What is of paramount importance in selecting an occupant for such an office is not whether he or she attends the same house of worship as we do; it's whether he or she adheres to a moral and ethical code, rooted in natural law rather than doctrinal purity, that we believe offers a better vision for America." -- Jim Daly

Which is why we will be casting our vote for Mitt Romney in the Fall.

Thankfully we have the opportunity to vote for a bible believing Christian :)

Just to represent the other side...I find the conflation of church and state to be completely terrifying and agree with this quotation wholeheartedly.
