Those atheists are always up to something.

Do we have a majority of atheists in this thread? I know it's a U2 forum and all, but it's also a band that attracts more intellectually minded people...hell, at one of the recent San Jose shows, I recall Bono trying to get Atheists into what he was calling for after he realized his spiritual calls were falling flat with a lot of the audience (probably isn't a bigger Atheist enclave then around here given the IQs and the industries).

You really know how to make near baseless generalizations right off the bat.

I mean, I loathe religion, but I value humility. Something you don't have.

Now place this in context of repeated comments like this and others over and over...

A thread devoted to religion in here might be kinda fun.

At one point that was basically all it was. You could have named the forum "Jesus: Yea or Nay?"

Sanders supporters would be less religious than Clinton ones in here as I'm assuming Clinton supporters are more socially conservative and want to support someone that came out way late in supporting gay rights issues.

Yeah, no. We're not gonna do this 'atheists are smarter than religious people/Sanders supporters are smarter than Clinton supporters' thing.

Move on.

*Points to self* Not religious. Socially liberal. Liked Sanders, too, but am most definitely voting for Clinton in November.

Try again.

Atheists skew younger and the younger skew Sanders. Atheists have higher IQs given the information we have out there. Argument over.

Exactly. Clinton was appeasing her conservative base in the party, the same group that helped her win the primaries, including black voters who are the most against same sex marriage of any ethnic group.

Yep. She joined the LGBT battle right as its post-war celebration was about to start.

Is there any chance that you might move on?

I mean, I appreciate why people got behind Sanders. In terms of big ideas, I probably felt more emotionally drawn to him, though for practical reasons would vote for Hillary. But there are plenty of reasons to like Bernie, both on a personal and political level. I wish that a movement like his got more traction because there are a lot of hard truths there.

And maybe the country will shift that way someday. But that will not be tomorrow or this November. Don't vote for Hillary if you don't want to - I really don't like people telling other people to vote for x to stop y. Everyone should do what their conscience dictates, period, end of story. But for heaven's sake if that's your protest vote - to not vote or to vote for a Jill Stein - so be it. Why continue to harp on something that you can't change? It's like the definition of insanity.

For the love of all that is good, STOP.

Also, regarding the discussion about Clinton's history of support of gay rights...remember how Obama wasn't fully on board with same-sex marriage when he ran in 2008?

And yet, what got legalized - nationwide, no less - on his watch last year...?

Yes, we are here. I can imagine you being a bit hesitant to converse with us. But don't worry, we're quite OK. So, is there anything you want to ask the more intellectually minded people? You know, just so you might educate yourself.
