LOTT: [W]hat has made people uncomfortable is that people that have strong feelings about their faith, regardless of the denomination or background of that particular religious group, if they feel strongly and live and support the positions that reflect their faith, then you’re disqualified.

STEPHANOPOULOS: ….people are motivated by opposing this faith. You’d agree with that.

LOTT: I do.

Lott also tried to change the name of the filibuster vote from the "nuclear option" to the "constitutional option"
