I think this article needs to be fact checked in terms of who it claims to be atheists.

I changed the Hitler material to indicate he is theorized to be an atheist. There is not an airtight case that Hitler was an atheist. Careful historians don't make definitive claims when there is merely a possibility, although they may give the probability of such a claim being true.Conservative (talk) 10:08, 9 May 2019 (EDT)

I agree -- at one point, Francisco Franco (well-known to be a traditionalist Catholic) was listed here as somehow being an "atheofascist."[1] We shouldn't just name-drop everyone we don't like in such a page without being sure. --1990'sguy (talk) 10:25, 9 May 2019 (EDT)

These need to be verified in terms of being atheists

  • Fumimaro Konoe, Japanese prime minister.[3][4]
  • Jason Kessler, organizer of the Unite the Right March.[7]

I removed the section on atheofascism prevention because..

I removed the section on atheofascism prevention because it was too simplistic. For example, there are many causes of why a society may turn to fascism. For example, some religions are more authoritarian than others so a society that turns to irreligion may start off more authoritarian. In addition, there are many causes of atheism.

In addition, politically the atheists lean towards the left.

However, I did add related info in the "see also" section related to prevention.Conservative (talk) 10:40, 9 May 2019 (EDT)

Another problem with this article is its insistence on saying something is a cause of something when there actually may be several causes
