    Re: An Atheist President?

    Bah, I misunderstood the poll. Must have skimmed the OP too quickly. I voted "Indifferent" because I don't care about a president's religious beliefs or lack thereof. However, if the poll is about forcing the president or any other elected official to be an atheist, that's clearly unconstitutional and ridiculous at it's core.

    As long as you can back up your reasoning with a coherent argument, and not a supernatural one, I welcome people with differing viewpoints to participate in government. That's real democracy, and not wink-and-a-nod theocracy.

    There is no written requirement to be Christian to be Prez.... and I'm reasonably certain many of them who claimed to be, were not.

    Lol, yes, you do seem perfectly welcoming of different views in politics just not for people who have religious views. You are, indeed, the picture of tolerance.

    Should Christians be barred from voting as well?

    That would be silly. Christians should be able to vote for the same secular candidates as everyone else.

    Re: An Atheist President?

    We've probably already had Presidents who are basically atheist, but they go through all the rituals and services to pander to the religious right. I have a particularly low opinion of politicians as a career. Just because someone is practicing religion on the surface doesn't mean they actually believe in any of it.

    There is also the matter of freemasons being Presidents, of which we've had several but the media never make mention of it. The past 3 Presidents all have connections to masonry.

    Obama is a freemason. Bush and his father are members of the Masonic Order of the Skull and Bones, and W. Bush's inauguration was done on a George Washington Bible which belongs to St. Johns Masonic Lodge in New York City. Clinton supposedly wasn't a mason, but as a young man he was part of the youth Order of DeMolay, sponsored by the freemasons. Reagan was not a freemason, but he was given several honorary titles in a ceremony held in the oval office of the White House on February 11th, 1988, when a group of freemasons presented him with a certificate of honor from the Grand Lodge of Washington, D.C., then he was made an Honourary Scottish Rite mason.

    Most of our Presidents have links to the occult, even our founding fathers Franklin and Hancock were freemasons. Why does the media never talk about this? I find that highly suspect.

    I see the point you're trying to make. Unfortunately you're in the wrong position to make it.
