    Study: Atheists Most Discriminated Minority

    America's increasing acceptance of religious diversity does not extend to atheists, according to a national survey released in late March by the University of Minnesota's department of sociology.

    A telephone sampling of more than 2,000 households found that Americans rate atheists below Muslims, recent immigrants, gays and lesbians and other minority groups as not sharing their vision of American society." Atheists are the minority group most Americans are least willing to allow their children to marry into.

    "Even though atheists are few in number, not formally organized and relatively hard to publicly identify, they are seen as a threat to the American way of life by a large portion of the American public," said the release

    Attitudes toward atheists "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.

    Edgell contends today's atheists fill a stereotype that was formerly attributed to Catholics, Jews or communists as a "symbolic moral boundary to membership in American society."

    Many respondents in the study associated atheism with an array of moral indiscretions ranging from criminal behavior to rampant materialism and cultural elitism. Edgell said many Americans feel atheists do not share "an understanding of right and wrong."

    "Our findings seem to rest on a view of atheists as self-interested individuals who are not concerned with the common good."

    The more educated Americans are, the more they accept atheists, although there was less acceptance by educated Midwesterners.

    The study refers to atheists as only three percent of the population, although the definitive American Religious Identification Survey by City University of New York finds the "nonreligious" at a sizeable 14% to be the fastest-growing segment.

    How has Jewish Marxism not destroyed the world any more than Jewish Abrahamism? The Eastern Bloc disproved this persecution complex before all of us were born and continues to. Just take a trip to see Atheism at work where whole societies adhere to it. Hardly any difference in quality of life for dissenters from the communal norm otherwise. Maybe it's the Dalai Lama and Falungong who were behind Mao and Pol Pot? Atheists worship living men like Stalin who mass murder their own people with budgetary excuses and still, the Atheist masses excuse injuries done for their gods on Earth. At least Caligula and Nero just claimed to be godlike and not actual superior replacements to the Olympians. Nevertheless, Kim Jong Un is but a man like his father and this state terrorist will go to his grave all the same.

    (((Atheists))) the most persecuted minority what a joke. Every time someone puts
    up a nativity scene or a cross some (((atheist))) files a lawsuit and it gets taken down.
    Oh and most jews call themselves (((atheists))).

    Atheists are not discriminated against unless they try to take political office in Anglo countries. Communism did a number on Czech Republic who have some of the most well-known Baroque Christian churches or masterpieces in Central Europe. I read that half of the Czechs are atheists so some Christians sent missionaries over to help with their cultural and spiritual problems post-communism. Some of their buildings still display the "Great Communist" workers that replaced saints or Christian scenes. Moreover, I read current Swiss research about atheist's birth rate. They have lower fertility rates like 0.8 -1.1 than the general population of Swiss. Even in the States, a few highly intelligent men (geniuses) that I knew personally had no children. They have extremely high motivation and successful outcomes but failed biologically to leave behind their genes. Atheists are heavily into moral relativism.
