How has your atheism affected your political beliefs?
I know that personally being a very pro science atheist is completely intertwined with my politics. I most closely identify with Anarcho-Syndicalism, which is at it's core an atheistic philosophy so it goes hand in hand.
But I have met gay republicans and religious anarchists, so I can't say that people are completely without weird contradictions.
But, back to the topic: How has being an atheist affected your politics.
I think it would be interesting to hear about people's opinions on atheism's effect on politics.
A great song by a great band who sum up my political views perfectly.
