As everyone knows that bothers to stop by here, I’m a conservative. If you didn’t realize that, just take a look at what this blog is called. I’m unashamed and because I am an atheist as well, nothing that I believed before I was an atheist has changed, with of course the obvious.
I sometimes, more often than not, see that there are those out on the tubes that don’t believe I can be both an atheist and a conservative. Sometimes, those comments online can become abusive. And they’re from both atheists and so-called traditional conservatives.
Of course, I rarely respond to the stupid, no matter where it comes from. Yes, I’ve even received threats from some that believe that I am just pretending to be an atheist in order to throw some sort of wrench into the “movement” (which doesn’t exist). Or that I can’t really be a conservative and not be a believer, and sometimes, some of those contain the same sort of threats.
I don’t care about anyone’s specific political or religious beliefs as long as they are not attempting to case harm to others. That I’m not only a conservative, meaning for me that government should have no say in what others practice as long as there is no harm to others, seems to make some angry. Some may actually refer to me as a Liberal.
It doesn’t bother me, because someone that is a true liberal would believe as I do. Freedom of religion, freedom of speech, and on. Some that refer to themselves as liberal, or conservative, in my opinion want the opposite.
I’ll continue to speak out against both ideologies.
As for this blog, comment as you may. I don’t moderate but be aware that I’ll delete/ban anyone that I perceive as being anti-semitic or racist. My blog, my privilege. Suffice to say though I’m interested in other opinions. I never think that mines the one that everyone should just take as fact.
Say what you want here. Disagree with me as you will. Be a freethinker and not believe what you’re supposed to believe based on any ideology.
Those of us fearing to say what we actually think or believe on any topic is anathema
to me. It’s the beginning of the end of freedom. We’re seeing the same occur around the world. We need to come together whether we aer atheists or not and reject the politics and rally around what we may do to improve the lives of those in our own community, and country.
