To atheists/agnostics out there, what do you think of the DNC Chairperson ousting Bernie Sanders
out of the presidential election because of his atheism?
Good idea. You see what the Republican smears machine did w Obama and muslimism. Just imagine what they would do to an atheist. The purpose here Is to win an election, is it not? You are fighting Lee Atwater types. You see how well being decent and honorable worked out for dukakis. And look how they treat a woman....senator. Sec of state, been all around the world, knows world leaders.....and they say she's not qualified. I'd say to the Republican media that is vast and powerful, an atheists is a step lower even than a woman.
What about how the democrats treat Sarah Palin?
She deserves everything she gets. She is the queen of mean.
@brad, her interview with Katie Couric kind of killed her.
I don't want to rain on your parade, but the Democratic Party was considering casting Bernie as an atheist in order to make him less desirable to most voters. Bernie is not an atheist.
Also, let me apologize for crashing your party, because I am not an atheist either, and you requested responses from only atheists and agnostics. But I did think it was important that you have the facts of this situation.
Reference: "Democratic National Committee had actively discussed various strategies to defeat Sanders, including appearing to invoke his Jewish heritage, portraying him as an atheist . . . ," (CNN).

2 days ago - "First of all, I am not an atheist," Sanders said on CNN's “State of the Union.” ....
Watch the video and hear Sanders say it for himself.

Meaning no disrespect, but it never hurts to get the facts.
