For the second time in less than a year, the Gallup poll reports that a majority of Americans would vote for an atheist for president. The latest survey, from June, found that 54 percent of those asked said they would vote a “well- qualified” atheist into the Oval Office— the highest percentage since Gallup began asking the question in 1958, when only 18 percent said they would back a nonbeliever.

America is growing up.

Yeah, it’s interesting the way attitudes to one thing or another will slowly change over the years.

Will America ever elect an openly Muslim president is a more interesting question though – given the
fact that a black president would be utterly unthinkable during the civil war era and right up to Kennedy’s
day and beyond.

I’m happy to read this. Maybe one day we can have a politician that doesn’t walk around with Jesus on their shoulder like a F*ing parrot.

This might take a little longer to happen but congressman Carson shows some real forward thinking.

Congressman Andre Carson, one of two Muslims serving in congress, encouraged fellow followers of Islam to strive to train up the next  generation of Muslim leaders in America.“[Muslims] have to groom the next city councilor, the next governor  the future president, the first Muslim president,” he said in May at the Icna Mosque in Hartford, CT.Thnn Congressman Carson went into detail over his “visionary” image of a Muslim President of the United States:“Now brothers, I don’t mean to hurt your feelings, but that may be a sister. … Can you imagine a sister in the White House with Secret Service, with a hijab on? I don‘t know if you’re ready for that, that’s visionary right there.”

Moment my dear, I am staying on topic. The topic is “I found this very interesting” and a muslim president is very interesting. Also, an openly gay president with a same sex partner would be very interesting. Just might happen what with the closet gays we already have in congress. I am all for diversity, and a woman president will happen long before anything else.
