1828 was rather close to the Founding of the US so the 1828 Webster's dictionary is very apropos:
patriot - A person who loves his country, and zealously supports and defends it and its interests.
Why would atheists be incapable of loving and zealously supporting their country?
I am more puzzled how a christian can be patriotic towards the US with all the murdering and stealing for plunder we have been engaging in for so long. :\
