Americans trust atheists the least

Damn, what century is this again? From Pharyngula

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.
These Americans don't think atheists can be moral. How sad. How sad it is that they think the only reason they behave themselves is because an invisible super magic power wants them to. And here I thought being kind and honest was the right thing to do because the world would be a terrible place if people weren't kind and honest.
