Enlightened ramblings of a minarchist libertarian with Objectivist tendencies

Better late than never

Since I wasn't blogging when this article came out, I am a bit behind the eight ball, but thought I would mention it anyway.

A lot has been made of the "moral values" exit polls and because of this, a false correlation was drawn between this and the supposed increase in Evangelicals. The problem is, the numbers just don't back this up, as the above article shows.

As is usually the case, people are quick to make the assumption that morals equates to religion. This however is not always the case. There are millions of people, myself included, that are moral people even though we are agnostic or atheist. We fully understand right and wrong and are capable of doing so without any religious guidance.

Both the left and right would do well to understand this.
