Rick Warren: Logic, not so important

“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.
