Can we get back to the issues, please?

I beg to disagree with you. This is the issue. Ask Edward Johnson, Puritan contemporary of Mass. Gov. John Winthrop. (if he were alive today :)

"Those who are chosen to a place in government, must be men truly fearing God, wise and learned in the truths of Christ...Neither will any Christian of a sound judgement vote for any, but those who earnest contend for the faith."

So unless you are a Christian you should hold political office. Given the Puritan definition of Christian, most office holders would have to resign.
