Politicians on both sides of the political spectrum have been ready for questions about what are their thoughts on the First Amendment. Those questions have virtually all come from one person: 34-year-old Justin Scott of Waterloo, Iowa, a self-labeled “atheist voter.”
Have in mind that Florida senator Marco Rubio, a GOP candidate, was not too long ago “confronted” and asked by Scott at a time of an event in Waverly, Iowa, as reported by the Associated Press.
More so, Scott questioned if the candidate would ever pick his faith over U.S. law. Carson answered by saying that “everybody, including atheists, live according to their faith,” as reported by the Christian Post.
“I have strong faith in God and live by godly principles of loving your fellow man, caring about your neighbor, developing your God-given talents,” stated. “And that’s going to dictate how I treat everybody. Fortunately our Constitution, which is the supreme law of our land, was designed by men of faith and it has a Judeo-Christian foundation. Therefore, there is no conflict there.”
Take a look at the full response below: It seems like the Republicans weren’t the only once to deal with the atheist. Hillary Clinton, as well has met him during the campaign trail. Within a brief video of their discussion, Scott says “laws that are based on religious beliefs that end up discriminating against people” and asks Clinton, “How do we stop that?”
Take a look at how Clinton answered:
“Well, look, I think we’ve gotta stick with our founding principles of separation between church and state. And remember — It was done in the beginning mostly to protect religion from the state.…We need to stick with what has worked.”
