Do you think a wiccan will ever run for president?
Being a studier and follower of wiccan practices, I wonder how come there has yet to be a wiccan presidential candidate. Aside from the obvious answer that the christian presi candidates would probably try to smother any spotlight they got. Still though, I think wiccan principals are a perfect match with American ideals. Do you think a wiccan will ever run for president?
Unfortunately, no; just as a Jew, Muslim, Buddhist, atheist, etc will never run. Obviously, that isn't quite true, they may try to run but will get nowhere fast, at least for the time being. The reason is that America is made up of roughly 91% Christians; it keeps getting smaller over time though.
Christians, along with Muslims, express themselves in practice, and in total contradiction to each religions most fundamental tenents, as very intolerant individuals, but, don't try to convince them of that. Let me say that there are several branches of Christianty that make very determined efforts to practice what they preach such as the more liberal wing of Episcopalians.
Watching what has happened to President Obama, who is actually a Christian, one of the tolerant ones, during the election and afterwards is proof enough.
I believe if a wiccan did run for president, that person would have to hide his or her beliefs to win. It is a shame that many people in the U.S. cannot learn to be more tolerant of other religions.
I support wicca(ns) fully, I believe that their practices are of great benefit (mother nature > nurture) - and I also believe that at the base of most non-orthodox philosophies is some form of nihilism - which I think is the next step of realization for our species advancement.
Sadly, 'our kind' will probably never make it into parliament

I have never heard of an Asian American, Hispanic American, Native American running for President of the United States of America. Why do you think that is? Do you think being from a certain ethnicity other than African American or Caucasian would make any differences on what they could...

If you could have chosen someone to run for president who would you chosen and why?I realize we just had a election and Mr. Obama had won. But if you could have chosen someone to run for office of president who would it be?

her? Why? Why not? Ms. Clinton seem to have the best qualifications for president. She also has political experience and is a quite savvy person?

Obviously, I have my views, but I leave this as an open-ended question. There is no question he has become a lightening rod and has stirred great controversy in America, and now around the world. Is that good or bad? Does what he is saying from his platform as a serious contender...
