Dangers of a godly presidency

Mega-Pastor Rick Warren of Saddleback Church in Lake Forest told the world Monday on CNN’s “Larry King Live” that the President of the United States should believe in God.

Polls show that Americans would rather vote for a Catholic, Jew, Mormon or Muslim than an atheist. But how wise it that?

I wouldn’t feel comfortable with a Pentecostal president who believed he was getting his instructions directly from God and talked in tongues and had the ability to heal.

I wouldn’t feel comfortable with a Mormon president who believed his/her religious leader — the church’s prophet — can receive direct revelations from God.

I wouldn’t feel comfortable with a Catholic president who believed it was his duty to promote the teachings of his church above all else (which is what a good Catholic should do).

I wouldn’t feel comfortable with an Orthodox Jewish president who believed women on their periods were “unclean” and that men and women have to be divided during services at the synagogue.

I wouldn’t feel comfortable with a Muslim president who believed in Sharia, the Islamic system of law that requires that convicted adulterers be stoned to death and thieves get a hand and foot chopped off.

I’d feel more more comfortable with an intelligent atheist who based his decisions strictly on facts and reason. Even if I was super-religious, I’d feel that way — unless miraculously the president held the exact religious views I did. And what’s the chances of that?

Except that even an "intelligent" atheist president would make decisions just like all the others - based on his own faith and beliefs. Atheists have tremendous faith, and I think it's pretty misleading to say that an atheist president would only look to facts and reason. His view of facts and reason would be greatly colored by his atheism. It sounds good to paint the atheist pres as the only one with reason and facts on his/her side, but it just ain't so. IMHO, anyway.

I agree with you totally on this. I just finished reading your book and did it in one day because I could not put it down. So glad to know that there are people who consider reason to be more important than wishful thinking. One of the most offensive comments in the world to me are when people are murdered and the remarks that follow are "she's in a better place" or "he is an angel now looking down on us" or "the lord must've wanted her more than we did". It goes back to the mentality of human sacrificing to the "gods". It's very difficult to find people who are willing to confront reality even if it means that it's an incredibly difficult experience without a deeper meaning.
