As we have seen in Iowa, evangelical sheeple blindly flock to the polls, voting for a candidate simply because he is charismatic and who they think is the most "godly". Few stop to ask questions about where these wolves in sheep’s clothing stand on issues that will affect their everyday lives in many areas. A new ad campaign is being launched to remind people to ask difficult questions and to really analyze and scrutinize the candidates before making their choice. It is not a choice to be taken lightly. No candidate is a “savior”, no god is designating “the one” to lead us. WE THE PEOPLE are making the choice.

On Eve Of New Hampshire And South Carolina Primaries, New Ads Press Presidential Candidates On Role Of Religion and Government
James Whitmore appears in a television commercial on behalf of FirstFreedomFirst.
For the first time in a presidential election and on the eve of the New Hampshire and South Carolina primaries a new series of television and newspaper ads is being launched to urge presidential candidates to protect religious freedom.
At a time when presidential candidates in both political parties are injecting religion into their campaigns at unprecedented levels, the new ads are designed to help provide a clearer understanding of where candidates stand on key issues at the intersection of religion and politics. The ads are scheduled to lead up to the New Hampshire and South Carolina primaries later this month.
First Freedom First, a joint project of Americans United for Separation of Church and State and The Interfaith Alliance Foundation, is launching the new print and TV ads to encourage voters to ask presidential candidates their positions on a wide range of issues, from end-of-life options to protecting the right of all Americans to worship…or not.
