Yeah, I am too, Polish, or at least that faith is as close as I come to any formalized belief system. It's been so long since I attended Mass that the church would probably fall down were I to go! It is interesting though, to note how the American political attitude has changed over the years in regard to issues like that. The religion of the candidates doesn't seem to enter the picture at all any longer, which is generally a good thing, I think. In the last election it was interesting to note that neither Kerry's Catholic beliefs nor Lieberman's Judaic background were even issues. Maybe the body politic has begun to grow up a bit.
