Don't they scare the crap out of you?
Here is a sure fire formula for intolerance:
People Soon To Be In Power + Some Religion Where People Claim To Know It All = Scary Bad Stuff.
Why do we confuse Freedom Of Religion with The Freedom To Shove My Religion Down Your Throat?
I'm very nervous about atheists who fanatically claim Darwinism as their religion of absolute faith (heck even Darwin would claim some uncertainty about his theories) and overly sure religions folks who want to blend politics and belief.
Keep 'em separated people.
What makes America one of the greatest places on earth is that we allow everyone, of every religion and faith and non-faith, to live here, freely. Let's keep it that way.
Politicians pandering to religious groups and adopting the language and trappings of faith are moving in opposition to the founding principles of this country. What are your leadership skills? Your ability to to manage complex data and make decisions? What are your shared values - ones that reach every citizen?
Why are you qualified to have the power of governance over us?
Your religious beliefs? Keep this to a minimum. Keep that in your private life. Explain how they will not lead you to make decisions that alienate those who do not share your beliefs.
