Did God Sit Out the 2014 Mid-Term Elections?

Disclaimer: I did not follow the 2014 elections nearly as closely as I have followed national elections in the past. For that reason, I hope readers will provide examples that prove me wrong in this post.

With that disclaimer in mind, I don't recall hearing a single candidate utter a single word about God or the candidate's religious beliefs. For me, that is disturbing on several fronts.  

It says that faith is not important to either the candidate or the voter. It says that candidates' political beliefs and the voters' election decisions are not based on an external, objective standard of Truth (God's Word), but on the candidate's and the voter's own personal interpretations of what Truth and Standards are. If that is truly the case, we are in a boatload of trouble.
