Hoo boy, this is such a familiar story.
Anne Graham Lotz, daughter of revered televangelist the Rev. Billy Graham, appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday, where she joined other faith leaders in discussing religious freedom and politics. Among the topics debated and the statements made, Lotz said that she would not vote for an atheist — a statement that will certainly ruffle non-believers’ feathers.
In making the bold claim,
STOP RIGHT THERE!
What “bold claim”? We live in a country that’s something around 70% Christian, in which about half the people reject all of science to believe the earth is 6000 years old, in which almost every elected official bends the knee and praises Jesus every time a camera is aimed at them. There is absolutely nothing brave about going on TV and professing the standard, boring dogma.
Lotz is just another sheep. We don’t praise the courage of sheep for bleating.
Well, they do on the Blaze. Bonus here: the Glenn Beck fan site has a poll.
Absolutely. It’s about policies, not religious beliefs. 8.94%
No way. A belief in God is essential. 87.09%
I’m in the middle on this one. 3.97%
No matter how you vote, expect the Blaze to whine about you atheists voting, and they’ll probably shut the poll down or start changing the numbers. Then we win.
