Would you vote for a President who is agnostic?
With the focus on the presidential hopefuls religion these last few elections we need to consider the possibility of on running who does not believe in God.
Short answer: Yes, as long as we agreed on other issues. I would not be uncomfortable at all with having officials who have no religion.
I am from, and live in the UK, so whether the US President is agnostic, Christian, or any other belief is of no relevence. However in the Uk we have a monarch as the head of state, that monarch also carries the title as the Head of the Church of England. The monarch must be, outwardly, a practising Anglican, the head of the US does not, I believe, carry this religious burden. The belief system of the US head of state should have no bearing upon that position.
If he or she were the best person for the job I would not care about their religious beliefs.
An agnostic, left-center technocrat is exactly what the country needs right now, not that that is likely to be a possibility in the near future.
Absolutely not. Try as people might, they will never remove God from America, nor America from God.
No, I would not. This country needs to get Jesus back in our country more instead of trying to kick Him and God out of every aspect of our lives.

I'm struggling to keep up with all this. Is Trump really planning to attack North Korea if they do another nuclear test? Is it seriously being considered as a possibility? Or is it just sabre rattling? And is this type of brinksmanship the best approach to foreign policy?

Do you NOT vote? If you don't vote, why?In the 2008 Presidential election only 63% of people who had registered to vote actually voted. This was the highest number of people who voted since 1968. Is there a reason people don't vote?

I recently came across this hub; http://hubpages.com/hub/Romney-Is-No-Optionwhich in one major piece of the article uses Mit Romneys religious preference as a disqualifying factor in his presidential bid. I personally do not like Mit Romneys policies, and I would not vote for him based on his...
