Would JFK been elected if he hadn't promised to "check his faith at the door?" I doubt it.

And you consider him a role model for sacrificing his religion for power?

And you consider [JFK] a role model for sacrificing his religion for power?

I know that I'd have to think seriously about voting for any politician who states that he will follow the dictates of his religion's prelate in matters of public policy. That means I'd have to study that religion's teachings on all the issues that might be involved in government as well as the specific prelate's views. It'd be easier just to vote for the prelate directly.

If politicians are going to toe the line of their religion, then their religion must become a part of the political campaign.
