    All he would have to do is pretend not to be a fundamentalist christian, but a "compassionate conservative". It worked last time.

    Well, the President in 2008 will be a Christian and probably a Republican, but not "fundamentalist" in the sense of someone who wants to see the ten commandments replace the Constitution. So it'll be someone like Bush, hopefully. Also like Reagan, again, hopefully. Partially it depends on how much of a threat IslamoNazism still poses. When the chips are down, America will elect someone with strong beliefs in faith and the conservative principles of the Founding Fathers. When things don't really seem to matter -- as in the 90s, after the Berlin Wall came down -- we'll be goofy and elect some non-serious person who has trouble telling the truth about anything.

    Catholicism got here first. The note 'Catholic' skill 'usually happening', 'which consists of all Christians or all of Western Church'. Catholics were the first Christians. Roman Catholic Church (in Vatican) is the first respectable Christian Church. Catholicism got here from Judaism and through ad 394 Christianity grew to develop into the respectable faith of the Roman empire. that's after the Reformation in the course of the 16 th century that Roman Catholicism chop up and had 2 different branches - Protestantism and Orthodoxy . Roman Catholicism, Protestanism and Orthodoxy are the three major branches or denominations of Christianity. those 3 major branches and some 'different' Christians are at the same time ordinary as Christianity. So if you're a Catholic meaning you're a Christian. once you introduce your self that's way less complicated for others to understand and extra smooth for you once you say ' i'm a Christian' or 'i'm a Christian - Catholic' than 'i'm a Catholic'.

    None I hope! Unless America is all full of ridiculous fear. This is not the case in fact most Americans are sick and tired of the religious right and it's fascist views. This is why Thomas Jefferson implemented a separation of church and State. Religion is basically based on beliefs and faith. It has no business in the world of facts and truth. That is why we have science.

    Politics is not all factual it's mostly lies and deception. It is why Religion and the religious fundamentalists have grabbed a poisonous foothold on politics.

    If the votes are fairly counted, none. Since the rethugs control the voting machines which have been repeatedly demonstrated to be easily hacked, the chances are high.

    What on earth has happened to this country? We are a laughing stock and a bully, simultaneously. The most immature and short-sighted are cheering on the greediest and most sociopathic.

    By the way, you don't have to imagine a fundamentalist govt in the U.S. If looking at saudi arabia doesn't tip you off, read the work of the 'dominionists.' these are the american fundies who want a theocracy. They want death penalties for adultery, people. They are a sick and evil and twisted bunch. Comes of living with delusions.

    NONE, Just like in 2000 and 2004, But he could do like the Bush Mafia ambush, have your fathers buddies on the Supreme Court swindle one election and Dieblod Corp steal the other or come up with other dishonest ways to do it.

    Anything can happen. It's a long time before the 08 elections. The way things stand right now .. not much of a chance. Good Luck! :)

    None. The current Fockup has destroyed any belief in the remaining fundamentalist christians.

    I'm pagan, and i'd rather have someone raised in a non-denominational system.
