89. That brings up another thing....
"Under no circumstances would I ever vote for an atheist for President because they are terrible and have no moral code."

from where I sit, the primary impetus for religous people to be "moral" seems to be a fear of getting squashed by their Deity like the big foot in a Monty Python skit.

So, I'm supposed to believe that ONLY religous people have a sense of "doing the RIGHT thing"? Because i gotta tell you, when you have no fear of "Divine retribution", doing the RIGHT thing is what it's about.

Oh, all right, so Star Jones doesn't speak for you.
Whatever.
