Kyle is actually the conservative here.
Personally, I hate the post-World War II era. I hate the Sexual Revolution. I hate social liberalism. In particular, I hate modernism, which I see as having unleashed a tidal wave of self-absorption, narcissism, hedonism and racial and cultural degeneration. Progress isn’t decadence.
Anyway, I am sharing this because this is the dominant view among Reddit atheists. If 100 atheists walk into a bar, you can be certain that over 95 of them see the world this way and the 5 who don’t would likely get jumped by those who do. These people are dogmatic social liberals and secular humanists. In fact, if anything is true, they are more dogmatic and intolerant about their religion than Christians.
I watch the show because I consider Kyle one of their better and more effective advocates and we share some common ground on other issues. Most people who share this worldview are nowhere near as presentable or articulate as Kyle. They are the people screeching on Reddit and Twitter.
Back in my atheist days in the early 2000s, I was one of the 5 out of 100 atheists who disagreed with all of this. In retrospect, I was alienated from the evangelical Protestantism of the George W. Bush era – the Christian Zionists and Prosperity Gospel types, the televangelists like Pat Robertson – but culturally my views continued to line up with my neighbors. I was never a social liberal or a secular humanist. I recall hearing about “poly” and “trans” for the first time on atheist forums.
I developed a new respect for Christianity after being more exposed to the values and beliefs of these people. I was convinced that these people believed in a worse religion than Christianity. They were certainly worse people than the people who I grew up with back home. That’s how I began to tiptoe my way back and reassess my views of religion.
