It seems to me that most atheists are politically liberal. But why is that? And should we include agnostics, humanists, and freethinkers? Most creationists tend to be political conservatives. Has it always been this way or is this relatively new? In the U.S., the polarization of the two parties is so severe that the thinking seems to be that if one identifies with either side he is expected to buy into the entire philosophy.

I've asked a lot of questions because as an agnostic I consider myself a conservative on most issues. Am I a man without a country? I would be interested in hearing what you have to say about any or all the questions I presented.

Yes. Typically, socialist and communist regimes are not religious. Even Venezuela!
The Nazis (Nazional Socialist German Labor Party) did the very Satanist by murdering a part of Abraham's people and therefore not very religious either.
Communism has always been "Atheist" patently and Communism isn't far from Socialism, let's be real about this point.

Good? Study Very Happy Cool

So, you have no documentation or other support for your claim. Unsupported claims are mere opinions

Aren't they also the most Socialist and Communist? The answer, my friend, is blouwing in the wind, the answer is blouwing in the wind... Cool

Hmmm. I have stated elsewhere that I do not believe the US has a left of center, only a right of center (democrats) and a far right of center (republicans). It might be a good idea, and open up the 'Great Debate', if you had.

Best wishes, 2RM.

You are referring to the Nazis who swore this oath:

    I swear by God this holy oath, that I will render to Adolf Hitler, Führer of the German Reich and People, Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, unconditional obedience, and that I am ready, as a brave soldier, to risk my life at any time for this oath.”

The Nazis thought they were religious, but they also thought they were doing good.

They were neither.

That should give us all pause for thought.

What should give us even more pause for thought is that no evidence has been provided to support this conclusion. It may be the conclusion many wish is true, but that wish doesn't make it true.

Where is the evidence?

History is the evidence that the Nazis weren't good. I would also say it bears mentioning that the religion they thought they were (Christian, primarily) preaches universal tolerance.

A few Nazis were Pagans, but I don't think you'll find Pagans that would accept Nazis as being real Pagans. An it harm none, do what ye will. That's something I've heard from real Pagans.
