Atheists - the new n-words

From E&P:

NEW YORK A new Gallup survey confirms that Americans claim they will be willing to vote for a woman (read: Hillary Clinton) or a black (read: Barack Obama) for president next year. But they still raise questions about voting for a well-qualified Mormon (Mitt Romney) or 72-year-old (John McCain) or someone who has been divorced twice (Rudy Giuliani).

Surprisingly, nearly as many say they would vote for a homosexual (55%) as say they would vote for a 72-year-old (57%).

...and the extent to which we are captives of the beliefs of others? "Asked if they'd be willing to vote for a "generally well-qualified" candidate with the following characterisitics," only 45% would vote for an atheist.

So pick and espouse the Invisible Supernatural SkyBeing of your choice if you want to run for elective office. I pick Isis.

Isis! Isis! Ra! Ra! Ra!

Arachnae--though I spend a good bit of my time in the service of the major offending Invisible Supernatural Skybeing, I vote for Kali! ;-)
