As long as he/she does not legilsate their biblical morals into law, there shouldn't be an issue here.
Me personally, I'm worried if the president is for the constitution, and his policies, not what imaginary friend he/she believes in.
An openly atheist POTUS would be just as significant to our national I.D. as the first African American, first woman, first 'fill in the blank' president. It would mean we have made tremendous strides towards tolerance, diversity and the absolute meaning of 'freedom of religion'.
It has been my finding that people of my particular complexion have not faired very well in holy scriptures. We often seem to be a curse of some sort or find ourselves enslaved.
At least the Constitution (by way of amendment) recognizes my right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
