(LA Times) Obama and Romney shun confrontation on religion

Posted by Kendall Harmon

Maybe the economy is a political black hole, sucking every other issue into an impossibly dense void.

Maybe Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are just private, cautious men by nature.

For whatever reason, neither President Obama nor his Republican challenger is talking much about religion these days — neither about his own faith nor that of his opponent, or the social issues that motivate religious voters.

Read it all.

A person’s worldview is an integral part of that person.  It is indicative of what they will do or not do and, if a politician, how they will govern, what policies or legislation they will support or not support.

Religion is part of that worldview.  Christianity is a worldview as is Mormonism.  Obama also has a worldview that is liberal/progressive is not socialist (one time member of the New Party as new records now show) http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/302031/obamas-third-party-history-stanley-kurtz

So, yes, a candidates religion is more than important; it is critical.
