    Question Why is faith such a big deal in politics?



    We can’t even get a thousand people to attend an atheist conference and they think we’re organized enough to have an agenda?!

    Because the idea of sPending eternity in pardise after you die is preferable to a) burning in hell for eternity and b) just completely ceasing to exist. And if you want to keep the legions of sheep happy, you pretend to believe whatever they do.

    Actually, the most powerful men in the world seem to believe in Molech and perform mock human sacrifices to a giant owl idol at a fun little place called Bohemian Grove...

    Abe Lincoln was openly non-Christian. And he therefore rocks.

    Abe Lincoln is also in my opinion, one of the biggest causes of racism today/

    Yeah, Lincoln was a good president in my opinion. I agree, why should religon matter in politics? For example, my friend freaked out when she thought Obama was a Muslim. She's a really strong Christian and was saying that "He'd probably deny Christ." Now that made me mad. I'm a Christian too, but just because some Muslims are bad, doesn't mean that all of them are bad. Besides, Obama isn't a Muslim anyway. Even if he was, I wouldn't care 'cause not all Muslims are bad.

    Wow. I love to talk Politics!
    Thanks, Ed!

    IRTT: Because religion, like everything in politics, is at it's core an opinion.

    I thought our church was supposed to be separate from state and that is why we left England in the first place?

    FACT: America makes no sense anymore.

    America prides itself on its freedom and yet European music videos show bare tits.

    Her face when she says "obama" makes me want to stab her in the ears.

    My grandmother originally thought Obama was a Muslim raised in Indonesia, where all the Muslims live.

    No, but if you can identify one muslim not currently living in indonesia, then the point is moot. (notice: I am aware that was sarcasm)

    Barack Obama doesn't live in Indonesia anymore. And he's a "secret" Muslim. Does that count?
