The purpose of legitimate government being to protect the people's life, liberty and property rights, Christians are ideal leaders as they religiously uphold these values and thus greatly reduce risk of corruption.

This is not saying only Christians should hold office, it is assumed that the understanding is that a large majority of office holders still be of other religions and atheists. The purpose of the poll is only based on their ability to uphold rights to life, liberty, and property rights.

Christians are more likely to uphold life, liberty, and property rights; even if their religion is false.

Yeah, why not?
xhammy says2015-05-28T21:32:32.3031888-05:00
98% of scientists are atheists and I respect that, they are clearly more open minded or some sh*t. But for freedom, well Christians.

xhammy says2015-05-28T21:36:37.2254710-05:00
Freaking lol, DDO is an open speech and needs no leader, thats the whole point of this poll, you just proved my point!!!
blackkid says2015-05-28T21:37:20.2531741-05:00
That you should lead DDO?

There is no such thing as liberty.

Those people voting that the government is not for protecting life, liberty, and property haven't read the preamble to the consitiution. The U.S. is a successful first world country so why would you not want it. Everyone wants to be happy, no one wants to be murdured #thatiswhywehavelaws. People make governments to be happier. Humans need order.

There's no such thing as liberty. You're bound by restrictions which exist in the world you exist in. You can't do whatever you want. Even (especially) the right-libertarians' claims that by preserving property "rights" (supposing moral authority in a world where it does not appear to exist), they are preserving individual "liberty" is misleading. If what someone considers to be their property is "protected" by subjective "force", then how can any individual be truly "free"?

Religion should NEVER run the government under any case. I'm fine with a Christian or whatever holding office, but this poll seems to not quite have that choice on it.
