Pastor-In-Chief?

Is it really that easy to lead in the Iowa primaries? I feel like I'm taking crazy pills.



Why the need for the subliminal floating cross, Huck? I think the 'birth of Christ' moment flat out pandered to your base just enough.

No, Mike, what really matters is to not elect someone that thinks a policy position is counting the Earth less than 6,000 years old. What also matters is that you're intimately familiar with the Constitution's Sixth Article, wherein the Founders laid down and the People ratified that "no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States."

Of course a literal reading of the Constitution would mean that Congress couldn't print paper money (Art. 1, Sec. 8). So you've got to take everything in there with a grain of salt...

Incidentally, the Air Force is also unconstitutional.

But that's neither here nor there. The religious qualification clause speaks to the larger concern I have regarding religion's proper(ly miniscule) role in political discourse.
