LINK Judeo-Christian Morality and Societal Health by Laura Hollis

@atheistsliberty I have asked this before, but never really got an answer. I am genuinely curious. How do you handle opinions like the one here from Townhall? How do you manage being Conservatives amid an ideology where you aren't a true Conservative, or even a true American, unless you are a devout Christian (or sometimes Jew)? How do you try to fight for recognition among a party who uses the term "godless" as an insult to their opposition?

Not downplaying examples like the one above, but personally speaking over the years it has been Democrats who have condemned my views on the matter far more than Republicans. All of my immediate family members are diehard Democrats, and extremely religious too. In comparison, the few I'm friends with who are Republican are largely unbothered by me being non-religious. Both major US political parties are influenced by religion. Ever notice how Democrats seem to show no interest in doing away with the National Day of Prayer?

Interesting perspective. Of course I have the exact opposite experience, but anecdotal evidence doesn't account for much.

@JacksonNought Point taken, but then I'd say that could apply to both sides of that issue. Religion isn't unique to only the political right.

@JacksonNought interestingly enough, I'm the only one in my family who identifies as pro choice regarding reproductive rights, and I am far more right-leaning overall than they are.

A better question for our time is why are people so concerned about old religions when the new one of wokeness is evolving right in front of their noses.

People live in the abstraction of culture. Although it has physical artifacts culture is about abstract ideas. One of those abstractions is reasons. The blind clock maker has no reasons but in the artificial state of civilizations people have evolved the need for reasons. Some of those reasons come from religion. It's a mistake to think that religion evolved to meet spiritual needs, although that is a matter of defining spiritual, religion is primarily a way to organize society. Take it away and something will replace it. Something that has reasons in a universe that doesn't have reasons.
