The Secular Coalition

The Weekly Standard has an interesting piece on secularist support for the Democrat party compared to conservative Christian support for the Republicans. Of course one difference is that the former is implicit while the latter is explicit. Secularists tend to align with certain policies, but their influence is felt through a multiplicity of PACs and organizations, rather than a "Secular Coalition."

Update: Chris Mooney has a better post on this topic than I.... (one thing that Winkler leaves out-most "Secularists" believe in God, no more than 5% of the American population doubt God, and more like 2% are probably avowed atheists like me. Also, very religious groups like black Americans vote Democratic at a higher rate than Secularists).
