No athiests vote GOP? No non-whites vote GOP? The GOP hates atheists? The GOP hates non-whites? Your assertions sound ludicrous and are incorrect.

I'm just asserting that most Atheists are Democrats. I haven't looked for statistics yet, so if anyone has some, feel free to put them forward.

However, I have heard that most Atheists are Democrats. Go figure.
Most (insert religion/world view/lack there of that isn't Christian) are Democrats. I know Pagans are overwhelming Democratic.

That is not what was said. You are taking a post and twisting it to fit what you want.

Religious fanatics almost always hate nonbelievers as well as anyone who believes in a different faith. Let's admit a bit of reality here, the GOP is dominated by some very extreme religious fanatics.

Just like Jews and Asians, groups that have higher IQ's and tend to vote Democratic.

Same with goes with Atheists. They have higher IQ's and the vote Democratic.
