(1) What is your ideological affiliation? What is your partisan affiliation (if any)?

(2) What TV, print and non-print media do you get your news from?

(3) What is your religious affiliation and how often do you attend services?

(4) Do you own a gun?

Do any of these "stick out" in terms of your political views? (i.e. a conservative Republican who reads the NYT; a liberal Democrat who owns a gun and attends church every week).

I have been called a troll (and worse) at many forums. But do you know what the opposite of a troll is? A fairy. As in homosexual.

1) Conservative and a Tory.

2) Too many to list.

3) Agnostic theist.

4. No. (at least, not yet)

I don't think so.

I suppose I could choose a less capitalist-friendly organisation for my news, and, at a stretch, my non-ownership of weaponry rules out any possibility in me playing a part in an insurrection, but I imagine if the latter were taking hold there'd be an avenue for obtaining one.

1. Libertarian, registered Republican to game the delegate system (although I ultimately didn't do so, oh well)
2. teh internets, don't generally watch TV
3. Atheist, only for weddings/funerals etc.
4. No, but I probably will at some point.

Not really except that my viewpoint is uncommon to begin with.

1. "New Democrat"
2. CNN, DailyKos, I also read RedState from time to time for balance.
3. Congregationalist/UCC/Progressive-type Christian.  I do not attend church mainly because my parents don't like organized religious and my mom is of a different sector than me (Catholic).  I will be attending church regularly after I start living on my own.
4. No, but I plan to.

1. Democratic Socialist.

2. MSNBC, but this is by process of elimination more than outright preference. Fox is terrible, but CNN is, I would argue, worse than Fox, just by virtue of not even really trying to be anything. Fox's operation is more respectable, but still evil. Otherwise, Google, Wikipedia, Huffington Post.

For Canadian news, The Toronto Star. For the UK, The Guardian. The Economist is also moderately entertaining/informative.

3. Atheist, but no chip on my shoulder or need to throw it in people's faces.

4. No, I dislike guns but loathe excessive gun ownership in particular. I'm more personally afraid of them than anything else, when it comes to my own handling of them.

(1) Democrat- Blue Dog.

(2) HuffPost, DailyKos Elections, Politico, The Young Turks.

(3) Catholic (non-practicing).

(4) I don't personally own a gun, but many people in my family do for hunting.

I guess the strangest thing for me is that I'm a social conservative, but I'm not very religious.

1. Socialist, Democratic
2. The Internet. Don't really actively consume any regular news services nowadays.
3. Muslim. Pray five times a day, obviously, and go to the mosque on Friday when I'm free; in other words, about half the time.
4. I can't imagine why I ever would.

Number 3 sticks out, obviously, in terms of level of religiosity.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

(1) Democratic socialist; I've no partisan affiliation but lean Green.
(2) BBC, CNN, CBS, Time, aljazeera.net, and via chats with people.
(3) Agnostic atheist; I only go to religious services during funerals.
(4) I own two guns, a bow, and might acquire a couple more later.

It sticks out that I am gun-friendly and avoid social news websites.

(1) Progressive center-left type liberal/renewable energy wonk (though not actually that green)/public healthcare wonk. I'm not actually a registered Democrat, but I figure that I'm associated with the progressive wing of that party.

(2) Salt Lake Tribune, Deseret News, NPR, MSNBC, forums that are interested in current news

(3) Mormon, attend services every week, and attend a religious class two or three times a week.

(4) No, and I never want to have a gun. I'm okay (if uncomfortable) with others having them, but I just don't want to personally own firearms.

The fact that I'm a Mormon and am in any way more liberal than Ronald Reagan sticks out, yes. As does my dislike of guns.

Only if I were in the army, but I'm not. My brother, for example, has a typical Swiss Army assault rifle at home but he hasn't got any ammunition.
