‘Faith-based voting’

Dear Editor:

In last week’s letter subjects included voting determined by religious belief on municipal council. 

Those who disagreed with faith-based voting held views opposed to Centre Wellington councilor Stephen Kitras. Would they have still felt he should not vote if he held same view as them? 

If his view was based on morals, would that affect the legitimacy of his position or should we only have amoral representatives? 

If an atheist voted against the hospice letter, what would be the grounds for objection?
