just a valid point I thought i'd bring up
Yes, that's valid.

But hope springs eternal, as they say.

The hope that one day, humankind will mature into a truly adult culture, and put away childish delusions (faith/religion) is always a good thing to have, I think.

Really?

I figured you, seeing as you are one of those Genuine Christians™, would have bought into the lie that he was a secret Muslim.

Your comment here is somewhat surprising.

Seriously-- it's pretty progressive of you, to admit that Obama is a christian.

I'm also quite surprised you aren't claiming he's not really a citizen...

... that IS how you people work: you attempt to rewire history to fit your fantasy-delusions.

For example: your vain attempt to claim George Washington was... a Genuine Christian™ comes to mind...

Of course they don't -- because of you Genuine Christians™.

You would assassinate an atheist candidate in a New York second.

Your history proves this all too well, I'm afraid.

Now try to come up with evidence on President Washington.

We do not have faith in You as a divinely inspired G-d who we must believe.

List some books you have read?

What's the matter? Your "edumacation" failing you yet again?

That's what you get, when you get your "diplooma" out of a cereal box.

LOL!

But you do have faith (read: self-lies) in a MONSTER god who murders innocent victims on a whim?

I.e. the BuyBull's monster-god?

Riiiiight.

Look at all this "name calling"....and they would pretend that they have become "adults" by such name calling.

But in reality they are just kids, thinking by name calling, they would win the discussion.

But I see you are now STALKING me-- your hate made you do this.

Indeed it is.

It's also a quite useful distraction to the unthinking sheeple such as Lincoln here.

It lets the politics be about a non-issue like religion or abortion, and so they can AVOID to 100%, the REAL problems in our government.

Such as the fact that to date, NO republican president has had any positive effect on the deficit spending--

-- in fact, the record-low deficit is still held by Clinton, followed by -- get this-- Obama.

But because of meaningless RELIGIOUS issues? We don't learn about these during the major elections...

... meh.

Um, if that was true then civilization would have never formed. Our species wouldn't have survived for millions of years, we wouldn't even have survived climbing out of the trees.

You've been listening to too many True Believers™, who's agenda is to keep you servile and stupid.

I see it's working...

...Religion is there for the wealthy & powerful to keep the poor... well, poor.

If the poor only realized the power they possessed in collective bargaining and demands as a group?

The rich would be considerably less ... rich.

But enter Religion: it keeps the poor.... poor by distracting them with silliness and hate, such as anti-gay marriage BS.

And the anti-abortion crap-- they are too stupid to recognize that the Richt-Wing ReThuglicans don't care about abortion OR gay marriage--

-- they only care about getting rich, and keeping those ill-gotten and undeserved riches all for themselves.

If the ReThugs had >>really<< wanted to end abortions and gay rights?

They would have when they were all in power... did they?

Nope.

In fact, they didn't even TRY. LOL!

Stupid people: being fooled by religion since money was invented.

All well and good.
President Obama is a devout Christian and sets an example for many Americans.
President Obama beliefs, correct or incorrect,:-) have influence far greater than a philosophy which seems to make their advocates so unhappy?

Maybe. Can one get elected in the USA if one isn't seen to be a 'devout christian', at least by devout christians? Atheists have beend doing that to avoid oppression for ever.
