Apparently, Republicans and Democrats pray quite differently...

BBT is right. Democrats are far less likely to call on jesus and much more likely to be ashamed of his name. Theres a lot more real christians in the republican party, but i still disagree with a lot of republican policys, especially the ones on taxes (rich pay the least), and big business law.

Actually, I think the big issue here is democrats are more open minded and more aware that the world doesn't revolve around them and their worldview. The Christian democrats I know try to live like Jesus, not shove him down everyone's throats through oppressive religious policies.

I'm a left leaning independent here, I tend to vote democrat nowadays, but I also vote for what I consider best for the country. Used to be a republican...but....ugh. Cant stand their misinformed ideas any more.

Also, I believe Democrats are more likely to choose non-Christians than Republicans for the congressional speeches, though that's just speculation. I've tried to find an actual breakdown online, but to no avail.

Well democrats are less likely to do the whole "Christian nation" thing and more likely to promote diversity, so it's highly likely.

American politics on the Religion board = horrible recipe.

If this turns into a debate... may god have mercy on our souls.

You know the libertarians are all for a lot of those economy policies you bashed above as far as I know. And they're a lot less for religion. Just saying.

Yeah, libertarians are typically more economically conservative than Republicans. Not only that, but Gary Johson is pro-choice. How much do you know about candidates before you vote for them?
