I mean seriously, It's Pathetic that many Atheists feel like they have to be Left wing because of this.

That is pathetic. I don't feel like I have to be anything. Like I said to my buddy last election, I hate democrats, but republicans scare the shit out of me.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

When it stops being profitable for them to be such.

I didn't vote for president last time. I voted on the local measures but I couldn't ethically give my consent to either Romney or Obama. I hate having to choose between a religious douche and a turd.

I no longer belong to either party. Both are full of morons and idiots whose main motivation is self-enrichment and ego.

Maybe the Chris Christie and Rand Paul will lessen the influence of the religious right but I am not counting on it.

You're kidding right? Christie is corrupt as hell (see the bridge scandal) and Rand Paul is an idiot.

I think you hit the nail on the head--maybe not as much profitable, but more so usable. It is a strong base for them. They can stir up the base by being anti-gay, anti-choice, in favor of charter schools, touting religious freedoms, teaching creationism in schools, etc., all within the guise of religion.

It is very easy to stir people up into a cause--especially those of lower intellect or an inability to critically think for themselves. The repubs use the banners of religion, anti-science (see anti-global warming), and anti-government to get votes.
