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.
