Started this discussion. Last reply by Richard K. Emms Jun 29, 2012. 5 Replies

In order to lock religious votes -- especially Independents, Catholics (including Hispanic votes) and the highly-religious African-American community?I ask this because I've had a helluva time…Continue

In case you hadn't tried it, DemocraticUnderground.com (DU) is a popular liberal blog, with an occasionally good Religion forum for believers and Nones to try and discuss issues reasonably.
