"God's not unjust, he doesn't actually exist. We've been deceived. If God existed, he'd have made the world more just... I'll lend you a book and you'll see."

"In this moment, I am euphoric. Not because of any phony god's blessing. But because, I am enlightened by my intelligence."

State Atheism is an ideology that advocates for a godless society for all of its citizens. State atheists tend to believe that religion in society should be immensely discouraged, and will suppress all religions by any means necessary. While atheism on its own simply means no belief in any religious deities (with there being various atheist-leaning religions such as Buddhism), state atheism takes on a more overtly anti-theist approach.

Beliefs

State atheism is the incorporation of positive atheism into political regimes. It often refers to large-scale secularization attempts by governments. It is a form of religion-state relationship that is usually ideologically linked to irreligion and the promotion of irreligion to some extent. State atheism may refer to a government's promotion of anti-clericalism, which opposes religious institution power and influence in all aspects of public and political life, including the involvement of religion in the everyday life of their citizens.

History

State atheism has its historical roots in being practiced by Marxist-Leninist countries, religion is considered the "opium of the masses" that must be fought against. Many of these countries put significant restrictions on religious freedom or banned them outright entirely and actively persecuted their followers.

Personality and Behaviour

State Atheism acts like a typical "Reddit atheist". They love wearing a fedora and browsing r/Atheism. They think "sky daddy" jokes are the pinnacle of comedy, and think all religious people are ignorant and/or brainwashed. They also think that religion was invented by someone who was scared of dying. Despite their harsh attitude towards religion, they know almost nothing about the topic and refuse to entertain the idea that theists might be correct. They like to correct people when they say phrases like "God bless you", and talk about how much they love science despite not knowing much about it. They often get into arguments with Progressivism, due to their disdain for non-Christian religions like Islam and Judaism.

Skeptical

  • Technocracy & Scientocracy - I fucking love science! Please ignore that I don't know much about it and that some scientists were religious.
  • Juche - On my side, though I'm not sure you seem to like Korean Paganism. And why do you like to LARP as a god all the time?
  • Jacobinism - I couldn't thank you enough for setting the stage for people like me, but what is this "Cult of the Supreme Being" bullshit?
  • Dengism - Fully supports me. The only thing I dislike about him is the fact that with some religions like for example him, he is soft but not too much, I can ignore it.

  • Anarcho-Communism - No gods, no masters? You nearly got me. No gods, only masters, that is.

  • Soulism - No, I don't believe in your pseudoscientific new agey woo, but I admire and support your Sci-Fi variant.
  • Objectivism - Good philosophy but still too soft.
  • South Park Republicanism - I do really love South Park, but cut it out with that "duh I don't like religion but are you saying we just exist for no reason?" bullshit.
  • Manosphere - Yes feminism is like a secular religion where women are light beings and men evil demons who want to oppress them, some of you are pretty based (Turdflinkinmonkey, Adam no eve, Podnebesny, etc.) but others are religious boomers pseudophilosophers (Tate, Matt Walsh, Roosh V, etc.).

  1. The Cult of Reason and Cult of the Supreme Being were the first implantations of State Atheism. They were founded to counter the Roman Catholic chruch, which was heavily persecuted during the French revolution.
  2. Religious antisemitism that was practised in countries that enforced anti-clericalism implies that people who followed the religion of Judaism would stop being punished if they dropped their beliefs regardless of their ethnic origin. In practice, this wasn't the case, and a lot of people were persecuted for purely their ethnic origin.
