    Lots of worry about atheist being anti religious and militantly so but .. our poll reveals in a politically correct form mind you that over 10% here alone would vote against them on the idea that they have no faith at all which is definitly a militant reaction on behalf of the religious voters. I would suspect depending on the demographics of the region that number would only be higher and in some areas a majority would discriminate against them.

    If people vote for candidates based on there religious affiliation, or a lack thereof, rather than there political views, then they represent all that is wrong with the world.

    Of course Id vote for a atheist, religion isnt a big part of it for me at all.

    In fact someone could lose my vote for having TO MUCH relgion fater than they could for having to little.
    PURE STUPIDITY 1.) Glenn Beck doesnt lie. 2.) Obama is Jesus like 3.) Sara Palin is so smart & shes a great speaker. 4.) Obama does just about everything perfect. 5.) Fox doesn' t lean right 6.) Pro-Choice is no different than Pro-Slavery 7.) MSNBC doesn't lean left. 8.) What TSA does is no different than sexual assault & child porn.
