There are few Christians in politics and even fewer who live their faith. As a Christian I would vote for an atheist before either Trump or Hillary.

Is "Faith" Blogger Bill Tammeus an atheist in search of a religious label to hide behind?

Mr. Tammeus is a proponent of so many anti-religious tenets, that he's easily revealed to be a Judeo-Christian hypocrite.

On the topic of "traditional marriage" (most religious scholars simply say "marriage", as there is no such thing possible as "same-sex marriage"), Tammeus writes:
The GOP declared that "Traditional marriage and family, based on marriage between one man and one woman, is the foundation for a free society and has for millennia been entrusted with rearing children and instilling cultural values. We condemn the Supreme Court" for its ruling making same-sex marriage legal in all 50 states.

The Democrats, by contrast, said this: "Democrats applaud last year’s decision by the Supreme Court that recognized that LGBT people—like other Americans—have the right to marry the person they love. But there is still much work to be done."

Tammeus is a proponent of "same-sex marriage" and thus disavows one of the primary tenets of all the world's major religions. Now, let's get it straight, being pro-marriage and pro-faith doesn't mean a person doesn't have tolerance for the LGBT community. And two consenting adults are free to live together in partnership and love each other. But don't try to call it a legal marriage, because it's not.

On the issue of abortion, Tammeus writes:
So the GOP platform says this, among its 35 different references to abortion (compared to six in the Democratic platform): "The Democratic Party is extreme on abortion. Democrats’ almost limitless support for abortion, and their strident opposition to even the most basic restrictions on abortion, put them dramatically out of step with the American people." By contrast, the Democrats promise this: "We will appoint judges who defend the constitutional principles of liberty and equality for all, and will protect a woman’s right to safe and legal abortion. . ." And this: "We believe unequivocally, like the majority of Americans, that every woman should have access to quality reproductive health care services, including safe and legal abortion. . ."

Mr. Tammeus is a proponent of abortion, which like same-sex marriage above, is antithetical to the foundation of the world's major religions.

Please note the oft-used tagline "quality reproductive health care services" which Liberal Democrats favor as an obfuscation for the reality which is the purposeful murder of unborn children. Hillary Clinton is on-record as having said that abortion right up until seconds before full-term delivery is legal. A person, a political party, a nation that would practice human sacrifice while calling it a "reproductive health care service" is by definition unworthy of membership in the world's major religions.

We know that the Clinton political family is not faithful to each other, let alone to any religious faith. Tim Kaine, the Jesuit-educated, purportedly strong lifelong Catholic, supports abortion rights, supports same-sex marriage, executed prisoners as Governor of Virginia, and promotes policies which favor the wealthy over the working-class. Not exactly following what he was taught, is he?
