According to the Cooperative Election Study, atheists are the most politically active group in the country, with agnostics slightly behind them.
Atheists show up for more political meetings, donate more money to candidates, and attend more protests than Christians do. We hear all the time about how politically active evangelical Christians are, but atheists are more active than evangelicals in every category of political activity.

Remember the bible verse where the "loving" Jesus crams all the nonbelievers into a winepress and squeezes their bodies until the blood covers the earth six feet deep for 180 square miles?

These words came in an official federal government Christian prayer from the taxpayer-funded US House…Continue
Ken Harrison, CEO of the right-wing Christian Nationalist organization Promise Keepers, for example, recently warned against the belief that Jesus is nice. Harrison said:
“We’ve taught a Jesus that’s an idol. That’s not the real Jesus. We’ve taught a Jesus that says love means being nice to everybody all the time. Well, when I read my bible, Jesus wasn’t very nice. He was not very nice most of the time. I mean when you’re saying you want to set the…Continue

Chuck O'Neal, the self-avowed Christian Nationalist preacher at the On Bible Church in Beaverton, Oregon, was desperately trying to show members of his congregation why they shouldn't be ashamed of being Christian Nationalists.
“Ultra MAGA Christian Nationalism. ‘Pastor, can you find that in your bible?’ Yes, I can, in one of my most favorite verses, Matthew 28:18-20. Matthew 28:18-20: Our king, the king of kings, the lord of lords, Jesus Christ who conquered sin,…

"I know your deeds. Behold, I have put before you an open door which no one can shut, because you have a little power, and have kept my word, and have not denied my name. Behold,…Continue

If US Senator Josh Hawley is known for one thing, it's his fist raised in the air in solidarity with the mob of Christian Nationalists on January 6, 2021, just before they stormed the US Capitol building in an attempt to assassinate members of Congress and overthrow the federal government of the United States.
