Valanalys från Washington Post-kolumnisten Sally Quinn

Varför kommer Mitt Romney vinna presidentvalet? för att han sagt "Gud". Det är i alla fall valanalysen av Washington Posts religionsskribent Sally Quinn.
This is a religious country. Part of claiming your citizenship is claiming a belief in God, even if you are not Christian.. We’ve got the Creator in our Declaration of Independence. We’ve got “In God We Trust” on our coins. We’ve got “one nation under God” in our Pledge of Allegiance. And we say prayers in the Senate and the House of Representatives to God.
An atheist could never get elected dog catcher, much less president. (Democratic Rep. Pete Stark of California is a nontheist but doesn’t talk much about it).
Up until now, the idea of being American and believing in God were synonymous.
