    Does it even matter who he picked? He's going to get the bible thumping, gay bashing, color hating, Chic-fil-a snarfing winger's vote anyway, even if he revealed that he chose Jesus as his V.P.

    Separation of church and state means there won't be a state or national church and you won't be required to be a member of any particular church to become a politician of any sort. Romney is Mormon, and I'd like to say most Christians do not agree with Mormonism. If Christians choose to vote for him, it won't be because they agree with Romney in a spiritual/religious sense.

    Jeez......now its really easy to tell whose vote they are aiming to get

    I'd rather have no president for 4 years than Romney to win......(Not saying im an Obama lover or anything either before someone tries to start a debate war)

    Wow, the hatred towards Mormons sure is palpable. That must make other presidential candidates all the more perfect then. I guess that makes everyone who doesn't agree with alternate lifestyles automatically homophobic then. Disagreeing doesn't equate to hated, but whatever.

    If you really think this is only about Mormonism, you have more than a few things to learn.

    I never said it was, I was saying the hatred directed at a presidential candidate just because of his religion is an asinine reason to hate someone. And just because the CEO of Chick-fil-A doesn't agree with homosexuality doesn't automatically make him a hatemonger. Disagreement doesn't mean hatred. So, if I said I was against illegal immigration, I'm automatically branded as being racist? News flash, illegal is a crime, not a race.

    What the hell is wrong with you people? Oh, wait, this is the internet. Never mind.

    But I digress. Trying to argue on the internet is like participating in the Special Olympics, win or lose, you're still retarded.

    Except that these are political figures that, if voted into office, will hold the powers of that office, which gives them the ability to force others to their whim.

    And these are people who are pushing for votes with info on which policies they'll enforce.

    And Obama isn't forcing policies not all people agree with already (such as mandatory healthcare plans/get heavily fined)? Romney is hardly the first to force policies not everyone agrees with.

    I suppose the next thing you'll tell me is donating to gay hate groups doesn't make him a hatemonger either?

    I never said it doesn't. People shouldn't hate others because of their choices. Disagreeing is okay, but outright saying you hate them is the greater wrong. Beside, since when does disagreeing with homosexual lifestyles constituted as hatred? I personally don't agree with alternative lifestyles, in fact, my older brother is gay, Do I hate him for it? Of course not,, but I don't have to agree with his choices.

    And there's people I personally don't see eye to eye on everything with, but consider them friends, while other people I don't see as friends are often people I disagree on some heavy shit about.

    Meaning it's often a "lesser of two evils" thing.

    When you are in a place of political power, your opinions are taken as endorsements or denouncements. That is a very powerful place to be, and as such, it is a very valid reason for disliking them as a choice for candidacy.

    Precisely. This is perhaps one of the most sensitive topics for me to discuss, but, I feel that I need to voice my opinion (which hold no merit on GBA Temp); again, I don't hate gay people, I just don't agree with their lifestyles. If they want rights, then they should have them and not be taken away by government officials.
