I find it hard to believe that we have got to such a religious position in this country that the leader (Nick Clegg) of one of our major political parties - and possibly a major player in the next government - could claim to not to believe in God. I'm no Bible thumper, I don't attend Church, but I do believe in God. Even if I didn't, I would still like to think that the potential leader of this predominately Christian country did. Many will say that you don't need to believe in God to know right from wrong, and that is very true, but surely all of our moral standards and laws can trace their roots back to the Bible.
Can you imagine the American public ever voting for a person who claimed that God did not exist? American Presidents sometimes come across as cheesy when they say things like "God bless America" or "I will be praying for the victims", but it is expected of them, and to be honest I like the idea of the President taking a few quiet moments to think about his people.
During Labour's last three governments this country has seen a creeping attack on Christianity. We've all heard the stories of school nativity plays and assemblies being made non-religious so as to not offend minorities. What would be in store for Christianity in this country if the outcome of the next General Election was to be a Lib/Lab coalition? - A coalition of one man who has turned a blind eye to the attack on Christianity, and another who doesn't even believe in it?
So you have to ask yourself before considering voting for Nick Clegg's Lib Dems: Does it matter if the person running the country believes in God?
