The results from the latest Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life show that atheists politicians are still the least likely to get votes:
WASHINGTON (AP) — One in four people in the U.S. said in a recent poll that they would be less likely to support a presidential candidate who is Mormon, an ominous sign for Republican contender Mitt Romney.
Yet the survey found two groups, atheists and Muslims, were even less likely to win votes.
Sixty-one percent of those questioned said they would be less likely to support a presidential candidate who did not believe in God. Forty-five percent said the same for a Muslim contender.
Only 5 percent or fewer said they would be likelier to support candidates who were atheists, Muslims or Mormons, according to the poll by two nonpartisan research groups, the Pew Research Center and the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life.
We’re behind Muslims for crying out loud. Hello?? Muslims flew the fucking planes into the Twin Towers, remember? And they did it because they believed god was on their side. You don’t have to worry about atheists doing stupid shit because they think god wants them to, we don’t believe in gods!
Of course the real reason why we’re so unpopular is the simple fact that we won’t favor one religious group over another and for many Christians that’s not a good thing if you want to get those pesky Ten Commandments on the court house wall or prayer back into public schools again.
