The character of the person who occupies the Oval Office matters to the vast majority of Americans, according to a recent Pew Research Center survey. Across party lines and religious groups, roughly nine-in-ten or more say it is either somewhat or very important to have a president who lives a moral, ethical life. But Democrats and those who lean toward the Democratic Party are more likely than Republicans and Republican leaners to say it is “very” important (71% vs. 53%). Americans overall are less likely to say it is important to have a president with strong religious beliefs; on this question, Republicans are more likely than Democrats to to prize such a trait.

  1. God say in His books
    All people are sinner, include all His prophets.
    EXCEPT Jesus Christ was Holy, never commited sin and live in Heaven now and will return to the world again.

    For what? To judge all people with justice for all, those who believe in Jesud Christ will enter to Heaven and those who do not believe in him will go to Hell.

    Allah commanded all Muslims to believe in Jesys Christ and Godpel. Refer to Q. 4:136,

    • The Christians and Somi may say so. According to Islamic teaching all children are born without sin (not even only the prophets). Poor Somi, never learns…

    • The Prophet Muhammad said, “No babe is born but upon Fitra (as a Muslim). It is his parents who make him a Jew or a Christian or a Polytheist.” (Sahih Muslim, Book 033, Number 6426)
      Islam is the religion of all Prophets, Adam to Muhammad. Children are not born out of any sin, original, inherited or derived. They are born on the religion of their nature, i.e., Islam.

  2. Talk is cheap. Actions matter. In 2016, Americans voted for a person whose lack of character, integrity, honesty, and compassion were on display for decades. Even now when they have witnessed all of these flaws, they would still vote for him. Christians are many times more likely to vote for him than Atheists. So there goes your theory of importance of character for the American people. They don’t give a damn.
