Atheists of the World Unite...

...for all we have to lose is our possibility of tieing the knot? WTF! Via my fellow blogger/believer in my crude maxim, "There is no God, but no God," Kevin Drum:
From a telephone sampling of more than 2,000 households, university researchers found that Americans rate atheists below Muslims, recent immigrants, gays and lesbians and other minority groups in “sharing their vision of American society.” Atheists are also the minority group most Americans are least willing to allow their children to marry.

....“Atheists, who account for about 3 percent of the U.S. population, offer a glaring exception to the rule of increasing social tolerance over the last 30 years,” says Penny Edgell, associate sociology professor and the study’s lead researcher.
So I'm happy to say that a white, middle-class male like myself can indeed still be legitimately discriminated against like any other minority -- how nice! And for all you Christians out there, M.M. and I are coming after your daughters. Watch out, because someday you may be sipping eggnog with one of us Godless heathens at your Christmas or Easter dinner tables. Hallelujah! Something sure has risen, but it ain't Christ.
