Considering that the christian faith calls for women to be submissive to their husbands, I think it's a perfectly valid question to ask any woman candidate.

Personally, I think our first woman president should be non-theist, or unmarried if she is also christian (or any of the big-3 abrahamic religions). There's just too much chance of submission in religious households.

Do you honestly believe every woman out there who follows a religion is submissive to her husband? That is ridiculous stereotyping. You are the reason it is so hard for a woman to be taken seriously in politics. Your expectations of what a woman needs to be versus what a man needs to be are unrealistic.

The dogma of each of the Big 3 religions state that wives are to be submissie to their husbands, and if a woman candidate states she is religious, I'm going to take her at her word and assume she is submissive...until/unless she states otherwise.

Believe me, I wish it were different. I wish christianity, judaism, and islam didn't oppress women...but they do. I don't believe any of those religions are good for women. And I don't believe it's good for our country that we have a secret requirement that ALL of our presidents be practicing christians.
