Targeting Religious Voters

I must be a target, then.

U.S. presidential rivals Barack Obama and John McCain target religious voters on Saturday when as guests of one of America’s foremost evangelists they discuss faith in public life, AIDS, the environment and other issues.

Neither of the candidates appeal to me from a spiritual conviction. McCain can be downright antagonistic toward evangelical Christians. Obama claims to be a Christian, but his words indicate that he’s more New Age “all paths lead to heaven” type of guy.

And nothing they say will change that. They’ve already told me where they stand, and anything different will cause me to lose further trust in them.

So just focus on the issues, ok? Don’t be a hypocritical religious type if that’s not who you are. I’ll vote for you if I think you’ll be a good leader, keep taxes low, keep government small, keep court appointees faithful to the Constitution, and keep the defense and freedom of our country strong.

And I’ll thumb my nose at you if I think you’re a hypocrite.
