“I could not vote for an atheist because an atheist says, ‘I don’t need God,’” Warren preached, according to the Los Angeles Times. “They’re saying, ‘I’m totally self-sufficient by [myself].’ And nobody is self-sufficient to be president by themselves. It’s too big a job.”
This is right up there with claiming that there is a 5,000 year definition of marriage being between one man and one woman.
No, Rick. An atheist doesn't say they don't need God. Good try, though.
An atheist, Rick, is a person who says, I have no belief in a god. It has, as far as I can tell, nothing to do with how self-sufficient they think they are or are not.
However you can spin it though.
