Less broadly, atheism is the rejection of belief that any deities exist.[5][6] In an even narrower
sense, atheism is specifically the position that there are no deities.[1][2][7][8] Atheism is
contrasted with theism,[9][10] which, in its most general form, is the belief that at least one
deity exists.[10][11][12]

"Progressivism certainly worships government, and religion and God are enemies of totalitarian
rulers, so it's not terribly far off to say that Progressives are all atheists."

I've always known you to say that atheists are people who believe (assert) that there is "no God",
which is false, or, at best, the narrowest definition from above.

I hadn't realised (until recently) the extent to which you've interwoven it with politics. Can you
get anything right about what atheism actually is?
