You remember those Romney poll numbers showing how many Americans wouldn’t vote for a Mormon president –- do we have higher or lower religious standards for our reality show winners? Maybe Mormons and beat-boxers are the last two okay-to-hate minorities. Look in the mirror, America! Would you vote a beat-boxer for president? I bet I could get a majority here for “No, unless Obama can beat-box.”
Of course, the percent of people who would vote for an atheist (46%) for president are far lower than the percent who would vote for a Mormon (80%), according to a Gallup poll from December, 2007.
So while an uncloseted atheist won’t be elected president anytime soon, maybe we can get one elected American Idol.
I’d be a part of that campaign.
Who among us can sing?!
