How about NO religion should be talked about by candidates? Who said anything about atheism?
If religion is part of who someone is then they have a right to talk about it...even if they are a candidate. I know that I don't want to vote an Atheist into office so I like to know if I have a belief in God in common with a candidate.
I should say vote ANOTHER Atheist in to office because Obama ACTS like a secular atheist even if he pretends to worship God. Actions speak louder than words.
Perhaps you will now enlighten me as to what system of morality is backed by anything other than faith.

The point I'm trying to make is that believing in any morality at all is a faith in and of itself. Atheist, agnostic, or believer doesn't matter.
Once again, from whence does that morality come from
and if you do believe that human decency and treating others kindly is a law of the universe, I contend that belief must be based in faith. Faith in the principle itself.

I don't have a problem with Christian views or values. I have a problem with those that claim to have the values of Christ, but only talk about them for political gain.
