WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Republican presidential hopeful Fred Thompson Monday said he didn't need to apologize for his faith, despite concerns from Christian conservatives that he does not express his religious beliefs enough on the campaign trail.

The Lord is okay with me, but Fred Thompson for president is not.

Why should politicians have to put their religious beliefs on public display in the first place? It's a private matter. As long as someone's religion doesn't involve ritual slaughter of little kitty-cats or something, it's nobody's freaking business!!! Not to mention completely irrelevant to their ability to govern.

If a candidate was running for President and we DIDN'T know his / her faith, we'd be asking and finding out. It DOES matter. Simple as that.
