Time Magazine’s cover story this week is based on a poll on religion and American politics.
The three Democratic frontrunners are leading a fundamental shift in how their party thinks about religious Americans, which includes the first party-wide effort to target and court Catholic and evangelical voters. Republicans, meanwhile, have been lining up to receive the seal of approval from Pat Robertson and James Dobson. But at the same time, Mitt Romney has gone to great lengths to avoid talking about his Mormonism, John McCain’s religious advisors quit his campaign in disgust, and when the AP inquired as to what church Rudy Giuliani attended, the former mayor essentially told them to mind their own business.
I commented in the comments section of another thread that I’m waiting for someone to ask a Catholic candidate whether he/she/it agrees with the pope that there’s only one true religion.
Now that would be a fascinating debate.
