I'm a fence sitter and I don't consider myself left or right.

I suppose the only way to fit me in here would be "politically left theist", although that is far from a good description.

A worthy goal - though frankly in this venue you are likely to get crosseyed answers.

You can put me down as a no - the addition of theism to my equation made no difference whatever to my rudimentary political ideas.

However, my wife reports that on entering the teistic zone she could no longer countenance cerain sacred cow liberal policies - though by no means able to pass as a normal consevative of any description.

Not necessarily - in the climate out of which Don Camillo Guareschi appears to see thw royalists of the place and time as at least anticlerical.

I really don't see what the basic thought of monarchism has to do with religion.

Most monarchies involve ruling with 'divine right'

Traditionally, yes. But the basic concept of monarchy don't require it.

So then, I guess that would make me some type of theist still waiting for a king ... or something like that.
