Evangelical politics puzzling

 

It is interesting that evangelical Christians are supporting Newt Gingrich over Mitt Romney. Apparently, they believe that being ethically challenged is preferable to being a Mormon (wrong on so many levels). I’m not sure why so much attention is focused on the evangelical Christian vote in the first place. The last time I looked, we were a secular nation.

Religion does not belong in politics (and vice versa). We have freedom of religion in this country and its converse, freedom from religion. It is hard to figure evangelical Christian involvement in politics unless it is to try to impose their beliefs on the rest of us.
