The question should be asked, would you vote for an atheist president? What would concern you about such a President? Would you be worried that his morals might be askew with the notion that there is not a higher authority to answer to so long as no one ever discovers what his vices are? Would you worry that they would have blatant disregard for those of various religious faiths in the US and around the world or even belittle them at times? Would the Islamic nations have a greater disdain of the US government than it already has if an atheist were to be elected? Come to think of it, have there been any atheist presidents in the US that have been elected as such? It seems to me that the majority rules in a democracy so if the majority believes in God then should they not elect someone who identifies with such beliefs?
