Assuming Mitt wins the election, will the Mormon Tabernacle Choir be singing at his inauguration?

Please discuss.

If Romney wins, a choir of angels will descend from the heavens, singing his praises from on high.

No, but JFK will be kissing the Pope's ring.

Why not? They're rather good, and I'm sure the President is allowed that modicum of religious expression.

I don't believe a musical performance ignites the constitution, especially since their recording have included "Born Free."

They are excellent.

Obviously not. Romney is doing his best to avoid the topic of his religion. Unusual for a Republican, but a politician's gotta do what he has to do. I'm more interested to see if he's gonna have to give an speech equivalent to JFK's about seperation of church and state. The whole issue is such a hornet's nest for Romney, and he's wise to avoid it as much as possible. I doubt that many voters even know that he is a Mormon anyway. And it's not like any of his opponents are going to point it out. Better not to give that inconvenient truth any publicity.

Because hardcore is sh**t.

So you think Mormons are more likely to have "good" taste in music than atheists or Christians?

I think atheists and Christians are more likely to have 'bad' taste in music than many other religious groups.

Jews probably have the best taste in music, followed by Lutherans and Catholics.

I'm not Jewish, Lutheran, or Roman Catholic.

The religious groups with the best musical taste are "spiritual but not religious", atheist/agnostic and unaffiliated Christians.

The groups with the worst taste are fundies, Mormons and black churches. Non-purely nominal Catholics are pretty bad too, as are Satanists (jokingly or not), or anything pagan-esque, as these tend to like metal.

Black churches have awesome taste in music. Agreed on white fundamentalists.

I think there's more overlap between 'spiritual but not religious' and neopagan than you're making there out to be, and I don't associate either with particularly liking metal, except for Norse neopagans who in my limited experience appear to be into folk metal, some of which is actually pretty good.
