It's pretty clear that God is just a prop for Obama, and that apparently riles some folks.

Nope, I don't believe that for one moment. Seems that some people would like to think that God is just a prop for Obama for whatever strange reasons, but it doesn't make it true about Obama (or anyone else that certain Christians like to think this about)

Actually, I think God is a "prop" for any politician that throws their religion into their politics, because, again, their religion has as much to do with their job as wether they floss every night or not. Religion and ethics or moral character

Yes, that's true. I'd much prefer someone who kept their faith to themselves and didn't wave it like a banner.

We know...but then you voted for Obama too.

Obama was never religious...until he showed up in Chicago and needed to get politically "connectetd."

For many people, religious teaching is a fundamental part of their value system, and so is a great influence on their lives and, undoubtedly, on how they would vote on certain issues.

Yes, I can see how well that works for people like Cain and Gingrich.

"Religion and ethics or moral character have absolutely nothing to do with each other."

Only for some people...and it seems that faith and religion don't do much to help the moral integrity of some people....again, as examples, Cain and Gingrich.

Lizzie,

Be careful, raw facts like that, which are not supported by liberals can get you banned from this forum.

I appreciate your post, and any thinking person on other forums knows the validity of your statements. However, this is ivillage, and dissent from liberalism isn't tolerated (well or long). :o

I don't get it, either. I also don't understand why atheists are so "despised." http://atheism.about.com/od/atheistbigotryprejudice/a/AtheistSurveys.htm

I know plenty of people of faith who live their lives with morals and integrity as well as atheists who do the same. It's simply stunning to me how much people of "faith" (and I'm using that term loosely for the people I'm describing since they clearly don't have good morals or integrity) get a pass for all moral failings simply because they claim they are Christian. We get the, "Oh, but they are trying" silliness. Talk about using "God as a prop."
