The founders weren't all Lutheran, or Catholic, or Quaker, or Jehovah's Witness, or Evangelist, or Baptist, or Unitarian, either. What they all WERE, was 'against religious persecution'. The Constitution expressly forbids the creation of a State Religion.<quoted text>
The majority of the founders were Christian with Christian beliefs. If they had been been founded by Jews we would probably still have a similar system of government as they also respect religious freedom.
Historically atheist regimes are repressive and brutal.
I believe that all people bring with them their respective values whether gained through a spiritual backgroung or a secularist one. That is human nature.
Your job is to vote for folks like Obama and Pelosi if you like their values and not to vote for a Romney or a Christie.
I think the people who vote solely on women's rights overlook whether or not their candidate has any governing skills or influence in world matters that will eventually affect us.
Hint: Christianity is not the 'majority' religion in this country, These days, when asked about religious preferences, MOST American voters check the 'none' box.
And just by the way??? I think people who take women's rights into consideration when voting, are concerned about EVERYONE's rights. If a candidate is a raging homophobe, or has frequently expressed a desire to quash women's rights, it bodes unwell for the candidate's eventual handling of world matters, and shows a distinct lack of 'government skills'
Governors who know their stuff, take the rights of individuals into consideration when governing.
At least one would HOPE they do.....
