Settler’s Lament: Atheism is inherently left-wing
Judah: It's hypocritical to embrace hierarchy, then to deny God's sovereignty.
Curufinwe Feanaro: New Atheism could have been halfway based if it had kept the message to “There is no god but Gnon, and Darwin is his prophet”, but it was quickly and very predictably co-opted by people who stopped believing in God a hundred years ago and just never told anyone.
Nate the Great: Precisely. Leftism requires atheism, for with God, one would find it difficult avoiding the inevitable backlash for breaking every Commandment and Beatitude.
Adam Milne: Are there not other routes to respecting hierarchy than through God? I personally struggle with which hierarchies to respect and I am an atheist.
Anonymous: if you are an atheist there is no hierarchy, only self.
