S.E. Cupp, co-host of MSNBC's "The Cycle," says that an atheist candidate for president would have no chance of being elected and that she herself would never vote for an atheist for president — even though she is an atheist herself.

And you know what? I would never vote for an atheist president. Ever… Because I do not think that someone who represents 5 to 10 percent of the population should be representing and thinking that everyone else in the world is crazy, but me. …

I like that there is a check, OK? That there's a person in the office that doesn't think he's bigger than the state… I like religion being a check and knowing that my president goes home every night addressing someone above him and not thinking all the power resides right here… Atheists don't have that.

So, she likes the fact that religion acts on a check on people — but she doesn't have a religion, so that means she either thinks poorly of herself because she has no such check on herself or she thinks she's better than others because she doesn't need one.

Either way she's still making a mistake because being an atheist isn't the same as being irreligious — some theists have no religion and some atheists do have religion.

S.E. Cupp (Sarah Elizabeth Cupp) also describes other atheists as crazy, intolerant militants:

"I envy religious people… I envy the faithful. I would like to be a person of faith, but I'm not there yet. ...

Speaking of atheists, I find atheists — militant atheists — to be among the most intolerant people that I've ever come across in my religious-sort-of dealings. ...

I am not one of these crazy, militant atheists — and I say crazy and mean it…"

The context of these accusations about atheists is the decision of the Secular Coalition for America to create scorecards for presidential candidates when it comes to issues that are important to secularists, like church/state separation.
