The following quote is from the United States, but I agree with the meaning behind it. I think that’s the intent behind the quote is that we should elect a person to represent all citizens regardless of gender, skin colour, sexual orientation and religious preference. A person who will make that choice in the best interest of the people regardless of their or anyone else’s belief of beyond death. A person in power that knows the real value of a life, not someone who thinks we’re going somewhere better after death.
“I want an avowed atheist in the White House. When the time comes to push that button, I want whoever’s making the decision to understand that once it’s pushed, it’s over, finito. They’re not gonna have lunch with Jesus, won’t be deflowering 72 virgins on the great shag carpet of eternity, or reincarnated as a cow. I want someone making that decision who believes life on this Earth isn’t just a dress rehearsal for something better, but the only shot we get.” – Quentin R. Bufogle
There have been too many wars and too much mistreatment of others under the guise of religion. Way too many people claiming to be religious eager to trample on the rights of others. Religion has been used to oppress people more than to elevate them.
