    Conservatives who aren't Christian

    Hello. Seems to me most conservatives are adherents of the Christian faith. Of course, there is nothing wrong with that. But I wonder if it's possible to be a conservative without being Christian. I know I am such a person, and sometimes I feel I am the only one.

    Also, most on the Left are atheist or agnostic. But I have encountered quite a few people who lean left who are also Christian.

    Your thoughts?

    Theoretically, sure. That's definitely not the position of our Republican party, though.

    Well I am a fellow traveler. I know not if there is in fact a higher power or not. I am pretty conservative leaning most around here would claim. I think I am a more of a classical liberal, I want maximum freedom with an absolute minimum of government.

    Speaking of which, I have noticed that quite a few people use "Republican" and "conservative" interchangeably.

    Would you say you are agnostic?

    In America, we have only one conservative party, and that's the Republican party, and you won't find many conservatives that don't support that party.

    I like how many leftist are such experts on the Christian faith, like to throw it in our faces, I guess they missed all the passages on the sinful nature of man, particularly John:3, 16

    Good question, I suppose the term agnostic as defined in the dictionary currently would apply, as I genuinely do not know one way or the other. I have suspicions and guess's but that is all they are in the end, definitely nothing conclusive.

    The Muslim theocracies in the Middle East are the most conservative places on the planet. So.. yes, you can be conservative outside the Christian faith. You can also be Christian outside conservative politics.

    Re: Conservatives who aren't Christian

    depending on who you're talking to, the difference between agnostic and atheist is completely meaningless. in literal terms, the difference would be that gnostic/agnostic speak about knowledge, where theism/deism/atheism speak about belief.

    realistically, though, literally no one knows the truth, so we're all agnostic. whether you believe or not is what informs your thoughts and actions.
