Are they an Atheist?

Do you think an atheist would ever have a shot of being president in this country?

Has the current administration had any effect on your (non) beliefs?

I'm a Libertarian. For me, the ideal candidate would not have to be atheist, as long as he/she respected and protected my right to be one AND did not impose her/his religion unto the land.

I do not think an openly atheist person would ever be elected president in this country in it's current state of whatever this is....

The current admin. has managed to heighten my sense of fright at the thought of what could be if this continued for another term or two.

Yes, or agnostic.

I doubt it... for sure not for decades.

Not really, it is more the other way around. My beliefs have changed my impression of the administration. I was a Christian and voted for Bush in the last two elections. I now wish I hadn't (not that Gore would have been my first choice either).

YES! I think it would be fabulous to get an athiest in office. A free thinker. Someone who can look at the facts and judge things for themselves. Someone who isn't affraid to admit they are athiest. I am sure some political canidates are. My husband and I actually had this discussion this morning (funny) because we were looking at all the politcal signs up around our town, he said "I could never run for an office because i would have to lie and say I was Christian to get anywhere. And I would have to go to church for all those photo shoots and pretend." It is sad isn't it?

I don't know that any canidate has to be of a particular poltical party (except no republicans!!!!!) hee hee but that they have a good stance on issues.

The current administration has further cemented my beliefs or lack there of. It is really frightening what this good Christian nation is heading toward.
