Etc? No, not etc. How would he do that specifically?
George Bush Sr said that atheists don't deserve citizenship, and Huckabee is much more of a "religious candidate" than GB was.
I have NEVER heard that before, but even if true, there is no way in hell it would ever happen.
I just plain don't trust any religious person to have power over the country,
Then you really don't understand several things, one of which is the power of the Presidency and limits on it.
which I know is hard to arrange since they all seem religious, but some are more religious than others. If Obama's religion is as bad as you say, maybe I better investigate.
Yes, you'd better. You won't be pleased.
And I am allowed to be bigoted, I am a minority. Anyway, religion could have a big impact on me, so it is valid to reject religious people from consideration -
I don't give a "free pass" to screwed up thinking just because it comes from an old book. To me, religious people seem insane - and I think that I am perfectly within my rights to avoid giving my votes to people I consider to be insane - the rest of their brain may work fine, but you never know, do you? I basically have the choice between lunatics, and people pretending to be lunatics to get the lunatic vote - I choose the pretenders.
You are within your rights, but then again you also have a right to have a knee jerk reaction to anyone that is "religious." I would still like to know why exactly you think these people--all of them---are insane.
Secularists would not be so bad if they didn't try to put their moral codes (or lack thereof) into the law, public schools et al, but they do - all the time they are constantly poking their legislative noses into other people's personal lives. To Hell with those who wish to destroy faith.
Religious people would not be so bad if they didn't try to put their moral codes into law, but they do - all the time they are constantly poking their legislative noses into other people's personal lives. To Hell with religious politicans!
See how easy that was? In all seriousness I would like some specific examples of putting their "moral codes into law." I would also like some specific examples of how Huckabee and Romney would do that.
