Well, if it's a sin to not do as stated above, then I'm VERY happy that my God is a loving, forgiving God, Moderator cut: blatant politics removed

We're not required to like the current occupant, but rather to respect the office.

We are allowed to vote for people whom we believe most line up with us... even if you or I disagree.

I can't imagine why Christians would choose people who are outright anti-God over someone who at least acknowledges God exist.
So acknowledging God exists is more important to you than what they do as president? Even if they are in favor of Christian issues while not believing in God?

I told you two times already: I would expect Christian presidents to veto immoral bills and to nominate justices whose views line up with his/hers.

UH, Caiaphas acknowledged that God existed and ... well he was involved in Christs death, so just because someone claims such belief, it doesn't mean he follows it. Politicians are going to say, most of the time, what they think people want to hear. The reality is that belief or lack of belief is not what drives them. Power does.

...and I already told you that a President doesn't have to be a Christian to veto immoral bills and Presidents ALWAYS nominate justices whose views line up with his or hers since the time of George Washington.

Maybe it was not clear enough. If the president is Christian, his views will be in line with Christian views, and he will veto/nominate accordingly. A non-Christian is far more likely to support issues like abortion.

So it sounds like you are saying that Democrats are non-Christians.
