I disagree with Hightower.

a collection of thoughts, arguments, and observations
that I have found appealing and/or amusing over the years;
and, if you choose, your civil contributions which will make it into a conversation.

What if?

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits workplace discrimination (including hiring practices) based on religious beliefs and the US has a strong history of separation of Church and State. 
What if a candidate for a high Government position belonged to a religion that made no distinction between religion and Government (a belief in theocracy)?  Would it be inappropriate, in the hiring process, to consider the individual’s political views since they are also religious views?
