If Ever There Was A Time To Ask "Who Watches The Watchmen?" I Think That Moment Has Finally Arrived


 And we can hear you:

Leave it to good ol' Pajamas Media to ask the important question Can a Conservative Be An Atheist? and not ask a conservative atheist, but a religious guy who thinks conservatism is "spiritual". 

 Two points this atheist conservative will make: 

 1) If conservatism is "spiritual", then please stop trying to impress me with the difference between it and liberalism because there is none - you're both a bunch of loonies I can't vote for. 

 2) This explains Mitt Romney's weirdo candidacy - and loss - better than anything I've heard so far. 

 And have you noticed how answers to important questions have to be gleaned from what the idiots say - on other topics? They were never this straight-forward when the burning post-election issue was "Why did Mitt Romney become our candidate?" 

Nobody ever said "Because there's essentially a 'spiritual' component to conservatism that makes us drift to scumbags selling homeopathy who think they'll rule other planets after death." 

This has to come out in a dialogue - supposedly about atheism - by two people who aren't atheists. (They didn't even have the integrity to invite a conservative atheist to join them, so how reliable are their opinions?) 

Whatev. It's all O.K., I guess, being PJ Media

 I figured out they were crazy, on my own, a long time ago,...


  1. Whatever happened to "separation of church and state"? Since when was combining spirituality and politics ever a good thing?


  2. Both Klavan and Whittle argue from the false assumption that the god created by man actually exists, and therefore the freedom of the individual must somehow be spiritual and be the ultimate authority.

    In actuality, man, the inventor of god, created by himself the idea of the freedom of the individual because it is RIGHT (and not god given). Perhaps he created a god to legitimize this rightness.

  3. Mr. Rational -- whether or not one believes in a divine creator or not is to me, rather an immaterial thing in regards to politics and statecraft. Or it should be. As the primary job of the statesman is to attend to the state -- and that means to all its citizens, who may or may not believe in a divine creator, or may believe in different forms of the same. You cannot have a free society if politics hinges upon belief and especially a particular belief system -- a code of ethics, morals, laws informed upon such things may influence, guide, but the notion has to be in place that others outside of the particular belief system may abide by those political leanings, believe in their correctness as well, thus not being excluded from the political discourse.
    All are equal in front of the law -- religious belief does not preclude/exclude people from political ideology, nor should they be silenced for that reason.

    At least that's my hick take on it.
