Right-Wing Atheists

republican-elephant.jpgI know atheists are routinely stereotyped as fringe liberals, socialists, or even Communists, but the reality is that there are plenty of conservative atheists. I've encountered Republican atheists, libertarian atheists, and all sorts of atheists who ally themselves with the political right. Once one understands what atheism is, this should come as little surprise. There is nothing about atheism that dictates one's political stance.

There are a number of atheist blogs written from a right-wing perspective. For some examples, check out Conservative Skeptic, Bitchspot, the Unreligious Right, or the Atheist Conservative. If you are a politically conservative atheist blogger and your blog reflects this perspective, please feel free to leave a link to your blog in the comments on this post. I'll repost this at some point with a list of right-wing atheist blogs.
