Hey, Atheists are improving in the public eye

Religion still counts in presidential race

Sunday, June 19, 2011  03:14 AM

THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH

In America, children are told that anyone can grow up to be president.

That may be true, but it's certainly more difficult for some.

When it comes to religion, it's hardest to be Mormon, Muslim or an atheist. Those are the three groups that consistently rank lowest in popularity polls among their fellow Americans.

Despite that, some believe the time for a Mormon president - or at least a presidential nominee - has come. Mitt Romney, a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, has emerged as an early front-runner among Republican hopefuls.

Members of these minority religions hope that time and visibility will break down barriers to the White House.

"The fact that we've elected an African-American president the last go-round makes me think people are able to look past things like religion and skin color to select the most able leader," said D. Bradley Welling, president of the Columbus stake of the LDS, or Mormon, church.

Most American presidents have been Episcopalian or another type of mainline Protestant. After that, Americans would be most comfortable with a Catholic or Jewish president, according to a poll of nearly 1,950 released this month by the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

Sixty-seven percent of those who responded were "entirely" or "somewhat" comfortable with an evangelical Christian president. Next came Mormons (60 percent comfortable), Muslims (38 percent) and atheists (37 percent).

Like Stephen Colbert would say: "If I don't see it, it means the climate is not changing."

This image from April 27 shows a series of tornadoes forming over Alabama and Mississippi. Captured from a satellite orbiting located at a fixed location above Earth, images like these help track trends in weather patterns. Another set of polar-orbiting satellites are useful for long-term forecast predictions.

Thanks Adriana, I'll look further into that.  I didn't really consider that option because I didn't want to indulge in paper>> Not very 'green' ya know.

@Sydni: We have home delivery (definitively NOT cheap, but it includes the right to read as many articles as you want online. It may be a better deal.

Apparently I've reached my limit this month for viewing articles in the NY Times and either I could wait until next month to view a limited number again, or SUBSCRIBE.  I can't do without full access to the NYT, so I took the plunge and subscribed.  Ain't cheap, though they do give a discounted first month.  Let's see how long I'll last?  Check out the subscription for yourself HERE:

Tea party group offers summer camp

By Marlene Sokol

June 14, 2011

St Petersburg Times

 

TAMPA — Here's another option now that the kids are out of school: a weeklong seminar about our nation's founding principles, courtesy of the Tampa 912 Project.

The organization, which falls under the tea party umbrella, hopes to introduce kids ages 8 to 12 to principles that include "America is good," "I believe in God," and "I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable."

Organized by conservative writer Jeff Lukens and staffed by volunteers from the 912 Project, Tampa Liberty School will meet every morning July 11-15 in borrowed space at the Paideia Christian school in Temple Terrace.

"We want to impart to our children what our nation is about, and what they may or may not be told," Lukens said.

In Sex Scandal, Congressman Resigns For Not Having Sex, Ctd

Josh Marshall agrees that Weiner's resignation is without precedent:

What stands out to me about all this aren't Weiner's juvenile and mortifying 'offenses,' but the bizarre and almost inexplicable and unprecedented calls for his resignation. I don't think anyone will disagree with me that the open and insistent demands for his resignation from the Minority Leader, the Chairman of his party, the head of the House campaign committee and everyone else is simply unprecedented.

David Kurtz thinks part of the reason Weiner had to go was because he was "a proxy for the [Democratic party] leadership." Jonathan Bernstein blames the lying:

Weiner’s colleagues turned on him almost certainly because he lied, and because of how he lied — because of the very specific lie that he told. If Weiner had ‘fessed up from the beginning, I suspect he would have survived.

Joyner asks relevant questions:

Is Weiner’s scandal really worse than that of those who survived? How much of his Democratic colleagues’ reaction against him is personal? And how much of it is sheer electoral politics, given that he’s in a safe Democratic territory and New York will be losing seats in the next Congress, anyway?

Ezra Klein claims that Weiner is "paying for how media-friendly his indiscretions were."

"Prejudice Is Bigger Than Race"

Saletan is saddened by Herman Cain's Islamophobia:

It isn't Cain's discomfort that should worry us. It's his comfort. He thinks he has risen above prejudice. He thinks his experience of discrimination protects him from doing to others what was done to him. He doesn't recognize in himself the same habits of group judgment, blindness to individual differences, and majoritarian claims to national identity.
