[QUOTE="cukoo"]Why would I want someone who doesn't believe in God leading this country? Someone that is letting God lead his or her life is going to make better decisions than someone that isn't letting God guide his or her life. All we need is a president that will take away religious freedoms and persecute those that believe in God. Is that what you all want? If you don't believe in God then that's your choice, but an athiest will certainly not make a good president due to the fact that this person will make decisions based on public pressures and feelings. They won't know how to discern a situation and ask God to help them make the best decision. That's the difference between an athiest and someone who believes and follows God.Solid_Snake325
Very well said.

The crusades were a good decision? An atheist would not have gone to war.

What crap. Someone who is part of only 7% in the US that doesn't believe in God is the one who's going to give into "public pressure"? And regardless, the public is supposed to have a say--that's the point. The answer to this question, regardless of belief or disbelief is that it shouldn't affect your vote because religion is not a part of politics. It's called the separation of church and state.

Is this a joke? There are hundreds, perhaps thousands of other deistic religions besides Christianity.

Look at the post in context... I was referring to the comparison between Atheists and Christianity...

You guys don't know what you're talking about, God does answer back, just not in a manly voice spoken out loud.

And somehow 'asking God' will making him a better leader? No. Leaders are not determined by their religious beliefs or lack thereof. Cukoo also has a delusion thatevery atheist elected to office will make a wholehearted effort to take religious freedoms away... with that logic, theist politicians would make a wholehearted effort to make everybody religious, and have atheists granted no rights! What we need is a competent person who is capable of making decisions (theist, athiest or otherwise!).

You're the one suggesting that without believing in God, you can't be as competent as a leader. Forgive my dispute on the ignorance. Perhaps you should clarify your justification on decision making, which was the point of my sarcastic question. If "talking" to God is supposed to be the best way to make a policy decision, I expect you explain exactly what is involved in this "talking".

The Enlightenment ideals for which the United States is based on were driven by many people who were deists, people who believe God played no part in this universe, and thereby set to introduce natural laws and self-determination into governance.

Thomas Jefferson was one such person and was the third president of the United States. Many secular and non-religious politicians in Europe also seem to have no problems governing.

I meant having a firm belief in Christianity can be a major factor in good leadership, it's about how strongly you believe in Christianity, not how much God is talking to you or what He's saying. Leadership involves believing what's best for the followers or the country, so you would be concerned with guiding the country by its biblical roots as the founding fathers did. Protecting human rights, not tolerating communism or terrorism in other countries, upholding justice, etc.

Your only prior line of justification was "They won't know how to discern a situation and ask God to help them make the best decision." so understand my complaint. As for the update, Christians have a monopoly on Human Rights? By my knowledge, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was written by the United Nations, which includes countries with national faiths other than Christianity. Additionally, I am quite sure you won't argue that despite every President falling under the category of Christian, Human Rights has not always been a priority (see: slavery). "not tolerating communism"? Perhaps I'm mistaken, but I'm unaware of the passage that condemns communism. I have heard of Christian Communism however. Lastly, from what are you basing these principles? Right now the United States has a constitution and Bill of Rights. That should be the basis of any President's upholding of rights. I know that there is a passage in the Bible in which the decision of what to do about a man who "gathered sticks upon the sabbath day" was to stone him to death. I understand that this is not something any Christian would agree with in modern day, so what is the decision process is filtering what is Christianly moral, and what is not?

And I find it hard to believe that God has existed for an infinite amount of time, for if that were true, then the amount of time between He existing and He creating the Earth would thereby be infinite also, which would mean it would never come to pass. Oh, and evolution in general is a proven fact. Evolution of Humans from a lesser species is theoretical.

Evolution is the increase in the commonality of a characteristic. It is not a theory on the origin of the universe. It's really simple: If something is more likely to die if it has a characteristic, then fewer of those with that characteristic will reproduce and pass it on. Similarly if something is more likely to survive or prosper with a certain characteristic, then there will be more of them to reproduce and pass it on.
