    ...I think I answered a lot of questions about the role of faith in our society differently because they were not about faith in government, but faith in society.  I'm all for faith in society (not that I have one) because that's an important part of being free.  I also said I had no opinion on a bunch of questions.

    But I dunno.  You can look at my linked answers if you like above.

        ...or more accurately, someone who just doesn't care about the whole idea of God.  I can't think of anything that matters less.

        •  what (0+ / 0-)

          about laws requiring people to wear seatbelts. I struggle to figure out your political beliefs, which seem to be anarchtic, if that's how to say it, in orgin, and are all around a 'let me live my life without even having to think about government or society. Do you oppose schools, or the idea of a government in general.

          •  I'm opposed to seat belt laws.... (0+ / 0-)

            ...in principle, I don't believe in compulsory public schools, and I support the idea of government in general.

            I'm pretty much a standard libertarian.

            •  wow, I'm really (0+ / 0-)

              a love the government, better government can help solve our greatest problems kind of guy. Compulsory publican schools are hardly a second thought for me, and I support seat belt laws because they really are the reason many people were them, and the law saves many lives. Like I said, we're like light and dark.

        •  an atheist that believes more faith in society (0+ / 0-)

          is good.  Go figure!
