More damned statistics

A study by the university of Minnesota has discovered that Atheists are America's most distrusted minority. The university's newsletter states:

"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"

The paper went on:

"Many of the study's respondents associated atheism with an array of moral indiscretions ranging from criminal behavior to
rampant materialism and cultural elitism."

Incredibly atheists are thought to account for less than 3 per cent of the American population.

So much for free thought.
