Why is religion off the table?

If history has shown us anything, it's that unexpected things happen all the time.  The issues that politicians debate today will not be the issues they will debate in 4 years.  So what elections about, really, but trying to get a feel for the candidate and how they think?  Given that it's impossible to know what President Obama or President Romney (shudder...) might be faced with in 4 years, we vote for the man and his worldview.

What is more fundamental to a candidate's worldview than his religion?  One's religion influences (or, well, should, at least according to most religious texts I know.  More in a future post) one's perception of absolutely everything, so why is it off limits to discuss if Romney believes in magic underwear or if Obama believes in the Immaculate Conception?
