"The reason I ask the question is to first, find other atheists (and other uncommon belief systems). Once I have found an atheist, I would try to discover the conservative part.
My area is filled with Catholic, Lutheran, Baptist, Methodist, and…"
"Huh. That's certainly a unique approach.
I don't understand. How does being Jewish, atheistic, or buddhist indicate that one is likely to be a conservative?
In my experience, it actually tends to be just the opposite -…"
"I would have to agree, Sam. It's a very old dichotomy, between the desires for security and freedom. The liberals primarily value security, the conservatives, freedom.
But, as has been pointed out before, those who would…"
"I can tell you what worked for me finding a conservative woman even though it was by accident. I wasn't looking for a girlfriend or relationship at the time.

I suppose the world…"
"That depends on what you mean by "treat" and how you define "equal". Probably your definition of "fairness" needs to be considered, too.
Sorry, but the question is too vague to be able to answer. I can think of examples…"
"My political viewpoints vary with the issue involved, (for example, I'm pro-abortion, but anti-gun control) but I nearly always vote Republican, because I find the liberal positions on most things to be so distasteful. I am also a…"
"Auhhma hailin frum Kiiintukay ... and no, i do not speak with a retarded, backwoods, uneducated accent. but i am interested in talking to any who may be near bowling green, i am a new atheist and feeling kind of alone in the world."
