  •  heck, part of your question's easy (none)
    "Judge Roberts, does a judge have a duty to hear cases and decided them fairly on the law and facts regardless of his or her personal belief?"

    "Judge Roberts, do you think a judge should be allowed to refuse to hear a case based on her/his personal beliefs or religious faith?"

    "Judge Roberts, do you think there are any situations other than conflict of interest in which a judge should be allowed to recuse him- or herself?"

    "Judge Roberts, does a matter of faith qualify as a conflict of interest?"

    "Judge Roberts, should there be a procedure to remove a judge who refuses to hear cases which conflict with personal beliefs?"

    As far as the rest of your question, I don't know.  I think electing judges is, paradoxically, the most un-democratic part of our system, and results in judges deciding cases based on their constituency, rather than the law and the facts.
