President-wise, I would vote today for an intelligent, compassionate, articulate, well-read, honest and brave atheist or agnostic over any one of the more-Christian-than-thou bunch pandering shamelessly in the ring right now.
Professions, assertions and declarations of "faith" belong at home and in the church/synagogue/mosque/temple/treehouse/cave of one's choice. In government, I want common sense and practicality, neither of which is the exclusive preserve of any religion.
However, I have "faith" that no such individual will emerge to save us from our own self-righteousness.
