Oregon Faith Report Reader Survey,
Just in time for the Elena Kagan Supreme Court nominee hearings. Recently we surveyed our readers this question: “Do you feel a Supreme Court nominee’s religion should be a part of the public discussion?”. The majority, 56%, said religion should not be part of the public debate and 44% said yes.
Below are people polled responses on the Elena Kagen question…
- I’m more interested in a candidates moral character than his “religion”.
- It is important to understand every aspect of a nominee’s decision making process
- I would like to know where they are coming from and what they believe.
- Okay if it is, just doesn’ t really matter. It is the principles they act on in their faith that matter, and that is what needs to be scrutinized
- A Supreme Court nominee like Elena Kagan or Sam Alito for that matter, should be free to express their history and life-story in regards to beliefs but not be compelled. There is a vast difference.
- Whatever Kagan says will be used against her anyways.
Local Oregon foresters and craftsmen offer Woodturning Blanks for woodworking projects. Display your skills with a lathe by starting from pen blanks or bowl blanks and creating beautiful artwork. Your options expand even more when you consider the options with burl wood and wood slabs.
Finally, if you live in California, be sure to discuss your options at a Sacramento probate lawyer related to your estate and trust. Legal planning is critical, and having an attorney who comprehends probate administration and law will be invaluable!
