Marco Rubio: ‘Faith in Our Creator is the Most Important American Value of All’

Florida Senator Marco Rubio just introduced Mitt Romney to the RNC crowd. In his speech, he used these words:

We are special because we’ve been united not by a common race or ethnicity. We’re bound together by common values. That family is the most important institution in society. That almighty God is the source of all we have.

Our national motto is “In God we Trust,” reminding us that faith in our Creator is the most important American value of all.

So… atheists aren’t real Americans? What about non-Christians?

The Republican Party’s platform in 2012 in a nutshell: Reinforce all the stereotypes the rest of us already have about them.

Andrew Sullivan adds:

10.32 pm. Rubio just ruled atheists out of being Americans. But it’s the smugness of this pathological patriotism that strikes me most. Which means it s not patriotism; it is a solypsistic nationalism.
