Another reason why I'm not a Libertarian

Read this. More specifically, read the comments.

It is true that anti-Christianism is the only acceptable form of bigotry left.

I would suggest not being quite so adamant about labeling the Libertarian Party as anti-religious. Particularly here in Indiana, our candidate for governor in 2004 was Kenn Gividen, a fine preacher man. Our Marion county (ie Indianapolis) chair is also a personally conservative Christian minister.

Other than that, I apologize for the occasionally uncivil attitudes displayed by some of our members.

Point taken. The Libertarian Party, officially speaking, is quite supportive of religious freedom in general. I used to attend meetings of the local party chapter here in Utah; everyone there was a devout Mormon.

Nevertheless, among the "left wing" of the Libertarian Party there is an undeniable undercurrent of anti-religious bigotry, as the comments in the thread so richly illustrated. I think one of the main reasons the Libertarian Party remains the "People's Front of Judea" of American politics is because the attitudes towards religion and morality displayed by many of their members turn off the overwhelming majority religious Americans.
