If you don’t believe in a loving God you’re more likely to crave a loving government – a yearning that helps explain the political survival of Barack Obama. In 2012, 83% of American voters said they attended religious services at least “occasionally” and they preferred Mitt Romney by 4 points. Obama won only because he garnered a nearly two-to-one majority of the 17 percent who say they never go to church. At the same time, 74% of voters listed the most important qualities for a president as “strong leadership,” “vision for the future,” or “shares my values” – and those who selected those characteristics strongly favored Romney. But Obama won 4-to-1 among the 21% who said their top priority was a president “who cares about people like me.” Without a God who cares for you, people demand a government that will.

    A loving God, a caring government; once I believed in both…now I’ve no hope for either.
