This is one of the most despicable political ads I've ever seen. A person's religious beliefs should rarely factor in when considering him or her for office, and the fact this ad is run by a Democrat makes it all the more shocking. I say rarely because if someone's religious beliefs have a deleterious effect on his/her voting, or otherwise keep that person from performing the necessary governmental functions, then they are worth considering, but that argument isn't even made here.

The Tea Party, if nothing else, has helped to somewhat libertarianise the Republican Party. I know that if Rand Paul is elected, he will not willfully support some of the more ridiculous social issues that the current Republican Party stands for, and that's a good thing. It's unfortunate his competitor in this race thinks Rand Paul's perceived religious beliefs are even worth mentioning--and a low point in this years election.
