In response to Barrie Johnson (Viewpoint, June 24), going to church or even being a preacher does not make a person a Christian any more than parking a lawn mower in a garage makes it a car.
Atheists are amusing because they always drag out the same tired rhetoric to support their religious views. Yes, like it or not, atheism is a religion too, and at best only 15 percent of the world’s population does not believe in a God or some other form of enlightenment, so you are in the minority. As the Bible states, “The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God'” (Psalm 14:1).
Toss this in for good measure. If religion and politics should never mix, what would happen if a Presidential candidate worshiped the devil? Would it matter to the public, especially the 35 percent who are Christians?
