Richard Dawkins: Republicans are a 'disgrace' for denying evolution.




My question is, what is the difference between the democrats and republicans in American politics? Are republicans more of the religious group or???

Most Republicans are very outspoken about their Christianity and want laws that align with their values.

The Democrats claim to be religious but don't usually try to push Christian values into law.

Well that's because according to some sociological studies and theories, one of the core elements of what makes one more conservative than liberal is valuing tradition, authority, and purity. They value the traditional values of their God based authority so it's what makes them deem it unreal. God's authority is more important than anything being proved or observed by demonstrable effects.. because it's god!

RE: Richard Dawkins: Republicans are a 'disgrace' for denying evolution.
The difference is the Republicans are the ones who make you want to shoot them and the Democrats are just greasy politicians. A lot of the Republican platform is based off religion, like anti-abortion and gay rights and stuff. They want small government, but more military, and are for gun ownership (second amendment) rights. They're against legalization of mary jane. Largely anti-immigration(as I understand it). Democrats are the opposite of all that in general. So that's an overview. The religious right is VERY strong.

RE: Richard Dawkins: Republicans are a 'disgrace' for denying evolution.
Generally, Republicans are on the "right" and are politically conservative and Democrats are on the "left" and are liberal. Libertarians are more conservative than Republicans. The Tea Party is the most conservative branch of the Republicans, but don't go as far as the Libertarians. I don't believe there are any "permanent" subdivisions of Democrats; they seem to come and go as issues change from one election cycle to the next. That's the political difference; others are describing the religious difference.

Libertarians are more liberal than Republicans on a few issues.
