Q - Does one have to be a Democrat?
A - well of course! What do you think an athiest is anyways?ha ha, lol! good one!!
Fun aside, there is a strong affiliation with "fundamentalist christianty" and republicans. Their brutal style of politics and the warmongering against Islam are two reasons why I feel good about my athiesm. Republikans use their strong faith and bible stories to justify their War on Islam, War on Drugs, War on long hair, etc.War War War.
So do christian democrats of course, they key being religion of some sort, with a god of some sort. They allways make trouble, allways.
I don't mean to pick out christians here, all religions have done war.
Seriously though, I think you will enjoy the support here.
None of it will come from religious people, but there is a very strong spiritual side to all who have joined up so far. "Something connecting all life and all things", is as far down that road to inventing god as we generally go tho.
But athiesm give you freedom to persue any line of thought without restrictions. We do not want to develop any "doctrines" of how athiests should act, thats the point.
What issues would yopu like to put forth? Whatever they are, you can expect some support , and there will likely be some debate too. Actually, not many christians visit us here unless they have a pre-determined hostility towards us. Nobody from Islam has shown up yet.
Athiesm is the fastest growing group of people in terms of beliefs.
Creation just doesn't make it for a lot of p[eople anymore, as we see that if there is a god, he could simply use evolutionary progress as his method. I don't know why the fundies cant see that.
