I'll say what I said in the other topic.

"Religious beliefs or the lack of religious beliefs should never enter the realm of politics. Religious ideology isn't political, and we need to stop making it political. "

NO ATHEIST PARTY!

If you follow discussions here at all, you see that we are not all on the same page, some not even the same chapter.

I think that a political party (or parties) that has secular humanism as a plank and stands by it with no pandering to religions is what we need.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

RE: US National Atheist Party
I didn't listen to that podcast yet... I got to the point where the guy said, "And it just turns out, Atheists ARE progressive center-left voters." That is enough for what I need to hear about.

That is flat out wrong even though I probably am one. It isn't a legit tying trend and it just shows the type of people he gathered are more than not that type of thinker. It may show more progressive left center atheists are more open to the idea of having a part in this "party."

I heard later he said something about the majority being secular humanists... That would be a better idea for a party line. Make a humanist party.

If you've listened to the podcast you woulda heard what he said,
their trying to enforce separation of church and state, freedom of/from religion
and looking at matters like abortion or civil rights without involving god,
based on consensus, experts and arguing.

So it's secular and secular is good, in response to all the christian right-wing going on.
And he actually says he doesn't speak for all atheists, he just speaks for godless
people who agree with the party's policies, which are all decided by in party vote.

I dont see why you find this objectable. if that's even a word

I don't. I didn't listen to the podcast. All I said is that any type of religious or irreligious ideology doesn't belong in politics. I agree with anyone that agrees with that.
