Godless in North Carolina elections

The North Carolina Republican party is attacking Democratic candidate for the US Senate, Kay Hagan, for ties to that ultimate evil in US politics, atheists. Much of it is political misrepresentation, because Hagan, by all appearances, fits most standards of devoutness American politicians are measured against. She did, however, meet with representatives of a “Godless Americans PAC,” which I imagine takes some liberal-mindedness, not to mention courage.

You can find out more on the “I’m important and smart” blog, including scans of the Republican flyer accusing the Democrat of associating with atheists.

We already knew about polls that show atheists to be the people most despised by Americans, least likely to get their votes. Nice to see politicians putting such useful information into action.
