Obama is an Atheist

Of course he is. The odds of members of his demographic being religious believers are minimal and there is no reason to think that Obama is any different from his cohort. He's not a Muslim, of course. He's just a common or garden variety atheist who joined Rev. Wright's church because membership in a Black Congregation was de rigeur for aspiring black politicians. But I don't have the least doubt that back at the U. of Chi law school he sniggered at us benighted Christians as good as the rest of them. He despises us, as they all do.

But I don't hold that against him. I voted for him and will vote for him again because I don't care about what the candidate believes, or for that matter about the candidate. I vote for the party, that is, the ideology.

But I do hope that at some point in his next term--for which I fervently pray--Obama will come out of the closet and admit that he's an atheist. I am sick of being patronized and manipulated, sick of the contempt of upper middle class liberals who despise me for my religious beliefs, who play games with me imagining that I'm too stupid to recognize what they're doing.

I'm a first time visitor to this site and funny enough I was drawn here from a google search to the posts back in 2008. I enjoyed reading what I have, which was about 13 articles, but I just feel confused with this particular article. I am a cristian, raised catholic, and isn't the idealism of voting for a group over the individual like saying you agreed with crucifying jesus because you side with the romans? Believe it or not, as of now i am only 17. I believe my age group needs extreme reformation, and so I try to keep up with what is happening around the world in addition to religion and work and college. I graduated high school early and I will be able to vote this year for our next president. And as quoted from a newspaper political cartoon "Both the Democrats and Republics look even in the poll runnings if you're willing to hold your nose and vote." Personally I have no idea who I am going to vote for because from what im seeing politicians fight against what they're put in office for. I see over and over people quoting amendments for example I think that the right to bear arms was a recent one. I see everyone quoting those but forgetting the very beginning of what gave us our freedom "Government of the people,By the people, For the people." And that is where we as a nation need to go back to. I look forward to reading future articles and hope to see many more to come.
