Should the president consider an atheist for a Supreme Court position?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on May 5, 2010
“Sure, I believe so. … You should have separation of church and state, so religion should have nothing to do with it.”
“No … I’m a religious person, Hindu by denomination, and I don’t believe the atheist point of view. I have nothing against them - they can do what they want as long as they don’t impose their belief upon me.”
“I don’t think he should consider it, but it wouldn’t surprise me if he did.”
“I think that he should definitely consider it because I think that an atheist could bring some valid points into some issues that are going on today.”
