There's been a lot of talk about how Latinos, African Americans, and Asians pushed Obama over the top. But there's another growing minority group that did, and no one's talking about them: atheists. Exit polls show those listing "none" for religion was 12% of the electorate in 2012. In 1984, it was only 4%. 12% is a bigger slice of the voting pie than Hispanics or Asians, and about the same as African Americans. If the media is really so liberal, why aren't they talking about this more?
Over 70% of non-believers voted for Obama. During the inauguration, he could have thanked us by limiting his usual shout-outs to God and scripture.
Young voters are disproportionately non-believers, so their numbers and influence will only grow as the more gullible folks die off. Ironically, the result of this should be a more Christ-like society because, like the other minority groups who vote for liberals, they're a lot more interested in practicing what Jesus preached, like economic fairness, peace, and tolerance. They're much more into "social justice." I know that's a dirty word to Bill O'Reilly and Glenn Beck, but it certainly beats their recommended alternative: social injustice.
Americans can only truly forge a personal relationship with Christ once those who don't believe in him start running things.
