This post is my attempt to up the pace around here. I’d like to write something every day but it turns out I’m not interesting enough.
A new Newsweek poll says that only 3% of Americans identify themselves as atheists. Only?!? They said “Just 3 percent of the public self-identifies as atheist, suggesting that the term may carry some stigma.” Wha? Maybe only 3% of people polled said they were atheists becauseÂ only 3% of them were atheists. Do they honestly think that the poll was skewed by stigmas when 82% of people said they were Christians? I would argue that being an atheist carries much less of a stigma than being a Christian.
