If you look at the universe and study the universe, what you find is that there is no evidence that we need anything other than the laws of physics and the other laws of science to explain everything we see. There's absolutely no evidence that we need any supernatural hand of god. -- Lawrence Krauss, World-Renowned Physicist
There is probably no other notion in any field of science that has been as extensively tested and as thoroughly corroborated as the evolutionary origin of living organisms. -- Encyclopedia Britannica
FAITH. No one word personifies the absolute worst and most wicked properties of religion better than that. Faith is mind-rot. It’s the poison that destroys critical thinking, undermines evidence, and leads people into lives dedicated to absurdity. It’s a parasite regarded as a virtue. -- PZ Myers
Religion is the antithesis of science, an anesthetic for the mind that disables critical thought and encourages the acceptance of inanity as fact, and wishful thinking as evidence. -- PZ Myers

Do liberal atheists disgrace atheism?

From the point of view of Christians, I would say most definitely liberal atheists disgrace atheism.

Why would Christians who are interested in things like having a family want to listen to liberal atheists who think disgusting ideas like abortion and same-sex marriage are wonderful? Why should a Christian trust liberal atheists who think out-of-control government spending and raising taxes to pay for it is good for the economy? Why shouldn't a Christian complain about liberal atheists who ridicule the magic Jeebus man while tolerating the terrorist organization called Islam?

Christians should know most atheists are not liberals. It might seem like most atheists are liberals but that is only because liberals are crybabies who make a lot of noise. It's more likely the majority of American atheists are economic conservatives who want to limit the size of government and who respect the idea of having families. While they don't think it's right to stick their noses into other people's private lives, they would almost never think it's a good idea to terminate a pregnancy. And they would not be pleased if their son or daughter was only interested in the same sex because like every other normal person they want to be grandparents.

I'm an economic conservative and I'm an atheist. I'm disgusted with liberals who cheer wildly when a politician says he wants to make abortion legal. I agree abortion should be legal but I wouldn't be screaming "kill the fetuses" like liberals like to do. I also don't think we should throw out the dictionary definition of marriage to accommodate a small minority of perverts.

Like most Christian conservatives I don't understand why liberals (both atheist and theist) think it's a good idea to punish success with higher taxes. People who work hard all their lives, live frugally, and save and invest all the money they can, should not be punished just because thanks to their hard work they have become successful and wealthy. If liberals don't think they are being taxed enough I invite them to make a contribution to the United States Treasury.

Christians, there are wacko atheists and there are normal atheists. Please ignore the wackos. They don't matter because most of them, while they might be educated, are just plain stupid.

The normal atheists are just like you Christians. The only difference is we don't have any supernatural beliefs. If you ever want to throw out your magic Jeebus man, that doesn't mean you have to throw out everything else. Your desire to have a family and eventually become great grandparents is good thing. You can keep that and everything else if you ever decide to join us normal atheists here in the 21st century.
