"Democrats" who base their votes on religion. [View all]

A few years ago our neighbor, who claims to be a democrat and consistently votes Democratic in the primary (in Indiana that's public record) displayed a yard sign for a republican candidate in the local election. This seemed strange as the democrat in that race was another, well-respected neighbor. When asked, he stated that he had to support the republican because "she goes to my church".

My personal opinion is that this is a pretty fucking stupid way to pick our leaders but not wanting to impose my opinion, I let the subject rest. The fact that his church friend recently resigned in disgrace and will likely be facing criminal charges speaks more to the issue than I ever could.

In the last election a Democratic Party official from an adjacent district openly campaigned for a republican in our district because they go to the same church. Her church buddy prevailed in a close election. This official regularly attends our club meetings and may have shared information on our candidates, fund raising and GOTV efforts with the opposition.

I'd like to openly confront this person and ban them from future club meetings but I'm being told that I'm over reacting.

What would you do?
