Well, i googled "conservative atheist forum", and this group was the first result. I'm glad to see it. I stay out of some topics, because i feel unwelcome. I guess i wasn't in the mood for a fight, so i just move on. I've never heard of S.E. Cupp (conservative atheist, i think), but there's a topic about her, and posters think she's a fraud, and not an atheist; an automatic pile on. It's just disappointing to experience this attitude among atheists.
""(for example: like fiscal conservative and socially liberal)"" - This is me, mostly. I guess the point i was trying to make was that the feeling of coming out atheist feels the same as coming out conservative on here:)
Don't get discouraged. For years I was the only Atheist conservative on the sites I visited. At times even polite disagreement would get venomous responses.
But then I would find one and occasionally two other conservative Atheists on some sites. Then I found sites like this with forums for conservative Atheists.
My politics are conservative on economic and national security issues, moderate with a libertarian influence on social issues. For example I am pro-life, but I also support same-sex marriage. Even among conservative Atheists you'll find a great diversity of opinions.
I would agree with you.
From what little I know of S.E. Cupp, she seems like a wonderful person; I wish I could someone like that who wasn't across the continent.
