Is it time for us to be a political force?
Be you Republican or Democrat, the one thing that unites all parts of the political spectrum on here (and its become less of a spectrum and more of a battleground) is the desire to keep church and state separate. (I am speaking mostly to our American members who make up the vast majority of the site). As midterms loom and polling begins. Maybe it is time to ditch party allegiances in favor of theological and governmental ones. When you are asked how you will vote in either the primaries or the booth. Try saying this. "I believe in the separation of church and state and will vote for whom I deem to be the most secular candidate". Only when a significant number of non-theists choose to voice their preference though the democratic system and make that vocal. Will the number of representatives come close to our true percentage of the population.
