Not All Thrilled by Democrats' Pitch to Religious Voters

The Jewish Week, Posted: Aug 26, 2008

WASHINGTON, DC When Democrats launch their efforts to appeal to religious voters at the Democratic convention, they run the risk of entrenching a religious test for presidential candidates and distracting voters from serious issues, writes The Jewish Week. Democrats are aware that John Kerry, the Democratic candidate for president in 2004, could only win 38 percent of those who attend church regularly. Anti-Defamation League director Abraham Foxman is concerned about the number of religious events at the convention and says that already too much effort has been made by the two major party candidates to establish that they embrace Jesus the most. Some Jewish leaders have said that they do not want religion used to divide but rather to inspire and guide in addressing the challenges of our times.
