Most voters who feel strongly about their religious back ground will not vote for politicians of a different religious background in which they don't agree with. Many times politicians are not voted for because of their great ability to become the next president, but because of their religious practices.
2. President J.F.K. is a prime example of why many U.S. citizens didn't vote for him at his running time because of his Catholic background. U.S. citizens were skeptical he would let the Pope, who is the leader of the Catholic church, influence his presidential laws and rules while he was in office.

The Wheel of Life shows how Buddhists see life and how to strive for Enlightenment. "How Does Islam Relate To Today's World?" Allah is quoted saying that "Curiosity will lead you to the right path." This statement has been proven true because
Islam is prevailing over all other religions, more people are reverting to Islam today even if the media doesn't agree with its beliefs. Obama, our president today is self proclaimed Muslim. It also affects the world today because so many are curious about the women who are wearing the skullcaps. Which in turn has influenced people to think twice about dressing modestly. AND for the first time Muslims have banded together to hold a political gathering and a unit body at a Democratic convention in Denver. Its called The American Muslim Democratic Convention. The wheel is held by a demon named Yama which symbolizes change and death. There are three animals in the middle that symbolize different feelings.

These three feelings turn the wheel of endless existence and will stop a person from reaching Enlightenment. Each of the six scenes around the wheel show people striving for Enlightenment.
