    All things being equal, no. "Not" believing in God shows horrible judgement.

    I would favor a president who believed in the Christian God, but it would depend on what my choices were.

    The implication of the question was 'God'. The God. I Am. not 'god' as in 'a president who didn't believe in ANY god(s)'

    They wouldn't have a chance in hell, but it would be refreshing to have one candidate who actually had a fully functioning brain for a change.

    Really? Osama Bin Laden believes in god and maybe someone like the Dalai Lama does not. Who would you rather have running things?

    It's irrelevant. Someone who doesn't believe in gods can still lead and make good decisions.

    I agree. An absence of traditional spirtitual beliefs does not necessarily mean an absence of morals.
