During Obama's campaign, many conservatives accused him wrongly of being a Muslim. I'm wondering, provided he agreed with all your "family values" and low taxes, small government, etc.... Would you vote for a Muslim? Or does the faith of the candidate affect your vote.

No, I have no interest in wearing a Burka. I'm pale enough as it is.

Please don't make stupid remarks. I can't tell if you actually think you're going to be forced into wearing a burka or whether you're trying to antagonize.

Muslim, Catholic, Protestant .... WTF ... who cares?

One of the hallmarks of this nation centers around the freedom of religion, does it not?

Ya ... I thought so too.

People need to just settle down and relax ... Freedom is just one step away for those who can put their religious prejudice away, and come to the table as a true American ..

as an aside;

I can see some Muslim tendencies in Obama's foreign policy ... does it make him a nutjob radical? Probably not .. He's too inexperienced and off the wall to be anything but your A-typical conservative left leaning Democrat ...

nuff said ..

Yes, I would. As long as he's not a fundamentalist, and won't run the country into the ground, why not? The only people I vote for based on faith are my pastors, deacons and elders at church.

No I wouldn't.One of my biggest fears for many years now is that women will eventually wear the burka in the U.S. I do feel we are moving in that direction. When I was growing up women looked sexy and glamorous. Today I see too much modesty. Lot's of women wearing sweats, sneakers and no makeup.

Expecting women to wear craploads of makeup, stockings, dresses, with perfect hair to please men, is basically the same thing as expecting them to wear a burqa.

Maybe we just like to be COMFORTABLE when running out to the store.

There is a difference between a muslim and a fundementalist muslim --- kinda like there is a difference between a christian and a fundementalist christian.

I would never vote for a fundementalist anything. I don't care to be governed by a person who believes policy should be dictated by a bible or a koran.

But a run of the mill moderate muslim? Sure, why not?
