Abstract:     
The standard liberal positions on free speech, religious neutrality, and atheism all reflect their religious origins. Because American secular liberalism and American religious conservatism have a common ancestor, it is possible for liberals to describe aspirations that have more in common with the religious, and thus more rhetorical power, than the arguments that they now tend to offer.
