Edwards Says Faith Is Important To Him, Kerry
John Edwards weighed in on the role of religion in politics, saying "voters should know that religion is important to him and to presidential candidate John Kerry but the issue shouldn't be used to divide people in the election," according to the AP . Edwards said, "My faith is very important to me, and the same is true of John Kerry. The two of us talk about our faith with each other. Our faith is important to us and it's always been important to us, and people should know that." Meanwhile, Reuters reports the Democratic Senators from West Virginia and Arkansas, Sens. Robert Byrd and Blanche Lincoln, yesterday "slammed the Republican National Committee on Thursday for a pamphlet that suggested liberals would ban the Bible."
