One of the reasons I started The Unreligious Right was, in my own small way, to counter the common assumption that atheism is only part of the political left. Although liberals dominate among atheists, there are still plenty of us on the right, as well as among libertarians and other independents. I hate seeing misleading headlines like this one at Politico: "Atheists keep faith with Barack Obama." I certainly have no faith in Obama.
The Politico article actually only involves three atheist activist organizations: The Center for Inquiry, the Secular Coalition for America, and American Atheists. Yet Politico implies that they speak for all atheists. The vast majority of non-believers do not belong to these organizations, which speak only for their membership, not for atheists in general. Atheism is non-belief in God/gods -- period. It is not a religion, a worldview encompassing unrelated matters, or a political orientation.
