Rep. Pete Stark is *GASP* a Unitarian?!
The big news around the infidel blogosphere is that 35-year Kahl-ee-fornia representative Pete Stark let slip that he, uh, is a Unitarian and doesn’t actually believe in any higher power. In his liberal district it hasn’t really cost him but the reaction nationally has been everything from ‘Finally!’ to ‘He’s the anti-Christ!’.
Well, he certainly is a non-Christ, which is very different from being an anti-Christ. He may be a bit too liberal for my taste but I hope this is the beginning of a trend, where representatives would be free to state what they actually believe – if they feel like it – about god, instead of what their political strategists tell them will harness the largest demographic. It would be nice to focus on things like the budget, the environment, and only getting into wars that have a real purpose for a change.
