Godless Conservative (Oxymoron)
"Godless Conservative" refers to faux conservatives who are atheists/agnostics, or who believe in purging spirituality and all references to God from public life. Prominent examples include Jennifer Rubin and Heather Mac Donald.
The radical and errant secular religions of atheism/agnosticism are not traditional/conservative religions (see: Atheism is a religion). In addition, so-called "godless conservatives" commonly reject social conservatism.
