When you cant leave your religion , when you preach about your religion , when you help convert other people to your religion , would you vote for the candidate of your own religion?

If I vote for a candidate of my own religion it's strictly coincidence. I don't even care to know the religious faith of someone running for office because if someone is suited to lead their personal religious beliefs shouldn't affect their governing. Annie

I don't really vote based on religion. I'm not a religious person to begin with, but I do lean pagen, and I'm pretty sure we have never had a pagen candidate run. I don't make it a practice either of trying to convert people to my religion. to me, it is a personal choice and I have no business trying to convert or push it on anyone.

I vote for the best candidate regardless of religion. But if I'd be as involved in my religion as you laid it out, I suppose a candidate of said religion would have to stand for the same principles, which since I'd be so involved would fully support. That in turn would probably make said candidate the best choice in my eyes. That's probably why people should make better choices when it comes to voting in people rather than going by race, gender, religion, or something else superficial.;)
