Yeah, I'm sure that they would be. I used to be active on the political Topix threads until we left the States, and I know that you are right.<quoted text>
Your doubts will be quickly confirmed if you visit the "Bush Is a Hero" thread.
It was the same war there as it is here, only centered around politics instead of religion. And the conservatives posting there were just as off putting as the theists that I later encountered after I switched gears following expatriation.
If you are interested, here are some representative posts from those days. Same style, different subject :

I ask myself why I still care enough about the religious issues in America to try to help, but not the political ones. I think it has to do with the hope factor. I have no hope left for American liberalism. It seems mortally wounded. The death of Americanism as I knew it, which is a liberal philosophy, appears to be a foregone conclusion in the process of unfolding itself now.
But there is more than hope for secularism. It seems like a done deal as well, but a win. It's the church that appears mortally wounded in this struggle. After decades of losses and failures, I just grew weary of the hopelessness of American politics and found I preferred the religious debate.
How horrible it must be for Christian Americans to be losing on both fronts, God and country.
