Christianity as a Political Liability?

Can you imagine if being a Christian hurt you in a campaign?

What if politicians courted the atheist vote? What if being a member of American Atheists was something unofficially required for all candidates?

Drakes replied that he is a proud atheist, and questioned Elders’ commitment to atheism.

“I am a proud member of the Council for Secular Humanism.” Said Drakes. “I can’t help it if most Republicans are Christians…”
