Let me start by saying that I am not from the US, but as I know most of the readers of this (great) site are from there, I am going to write it as if I were from the US of A.
Now, why is it that the prejudice stands at thinking of atheists as democrats? Why is it that conservatives are only thought of as being Bible-belt, Jesus-loving, creationist simpletons?
I consider myself a libertarian atheist. In all things "social" I would indeed be closer to democrats' views... but in all economic/political views, I am much closer to conservative views. Let's see: I am pro-choice (re. abortion) but also pro-gun carrying; I am pro-evolution and anti-religion, but also Obama-bashing (there, I said it... regardless of color, he is simply, plain useless); I am for small government and anti-terrorism, but I am also anti-death penalty. I admire Reagan and Lincoln and think Carter and Obama are the worst presidents in the last 100 years in the US... yet I am an atheist.
I wonder if I am alone out there... anyone with similar world views?
Thanks for reading!
