Would it make a difference?

There has been quite a protest from atheists, and rightly so, as an unfair bias against them in the United States seems as though it would keep an atheist from being elected to the highest office of the land. My question is, what difference do atheists think it would make to the country if an atheist was President? And let’s push that dream even further. What if the majority of the Senate and Congress were made up of atheists? Atheists think that it would make the United States a better place in which to live. But would it? And if so, how? Is France better off for being secular? Are there other examples where the citizens of courtries are better off now that Christianity is officially dead in that particular state?

My guess is that atheists won't answer this because it would show that contrary to their stated beliefs, even atheists would bring their beliefs to work with them. In other words, it's impossible to not bring your beliefs to work with you. But anyhow . . .

Just as I thought. There is no way that atheists can disclose what they hope would happen if atheists were in leadership positions in the U.S. They can't do that because if they did, whatever is lower than the lowest spot on an opinion poll, that is where they would be.
