The United States of America was founded to be a country based on the power of the individual over the doctrine of a King. General George Washington not only decided that he did not wish to become a monarch of the newly formed Republic – but also serve only two terms as President. The Liberty movement is one founded in rebellion against absolutism. Yet somehow in a modern and free society theological politics tells us that we the people of the United States, not owned by any human monarch or dictator on Earth, are subjects and “children” of a supernatural “Lord.”
Atheists for Liberty while in favor of religious freedom guaranteed under the First Amendment, rejects absolutism and divine thinking of all kinds. As citizens of this great nation we elect fellow individuals who hold no divine authority over us to represent our interests in our government. We as individual human beings decide our own fate – with no Gods and no Masters.
