In the recent Time magazine article (Warren is on the cover) Warren says the interview was not going to be a "religious test", yet one of the questions: "What is your relationship with Jesus?" sounded like a religious test to me. Warren also wanted to know the candidates view of the U.S.Constitution. In that document there is clear church/state separation. Evangelicals have seriouslythreatened that important part of the framework of the Constitution by co-opting patriotism, nationalism and the flag, in addition to the assumption that their doctrine is the measure of a candidate over other religious or non-religious beliefs. The candidates certainly knewtheir answers were going to be measured by their religious audience.
