White Racist Leader
Metzger, who found WAR (White Aryan Resistance) and is active on the radical/racial right is an atheist according to the book Soldiers of God: White Supremacists and Their Holy War for America by Howard L. Bushart, John R. Craig, and Myra Barnes.
Our contributor writes: "He was originally Christian Identity. I don't think his rejection of religion is based on science, rather it is based on a aesthetic rejection of Christianity as not suited for the white man.
"BTW, the interesting thing about Metzger is that unlike most anti-Christian racists, he's an atheist. Atheists are VERY rare on the racist Right...those who do not subscribe to Christian Identity are often Odinists or other pagan-occult religions. Metzger himself gives homage to Sun-worship."
At the end of an editorial on his resist.com website Metzger exclaims "Break out of your death cell White man! Your race and only your race, must be your religion."
Editor's note: Before you get pissed off about Metzger being here, keep in mind that those of us putting together this list try to be impartial in presenting the full diversity amongst living atheists, from the geniuses who enlighten us to the garden-variety kook who manages to land in the headlines.
