“Republican Atheists has more than one goal unique to its approach. One is to assure fellow conservatives and Republicans that not all atheists espouse Leftist views. Most vocal atheists are indeed far to the political Left, but, not only is that connection arbitrary, it actually seems to us that they are incompatible. Thus another of our aims is to show fellow atheists that their lock-step allegiance to Liberalism and to the Democratic Party amounts to a quasi-religious faith commitment. If only they would apply the skepticism they have regarding religious claims to the (completely unrealistic) aims and claims of the Left! We do not seek to promote atheism. Let others see to that if they feel they must. Rather, we simply want to convince fellow Republicans that we are with them politically and have no desire to oppose their faith, as well as to persuade fellow atheists that they should critically rethink their political ideology.”

-Dr. Robert Price
