a thing that is wild to me is that fewer people would vote for an atheist than would vote for a Muslim, a gay/lesbian person, or a woman

mostly because you don't really see overt anti-atheist bigotry to the extent that you see overt islamophobia/homophobia/misogyny, but it clearly still exists

re: uspol 

@hierarchon Yeah. With all the angry white male atheists dominating the conversation, it's easy to overlook how that anti-atheist bigotry is still baked into many laws, especially at lower levels of government. Like, tax exemptions for churches, as though "Render unto Caesar" was merely a suggestion.

I wish more people understood that just because well-off white men have enough privilege to largely shrug off religious bigotry here in the US, that doesn't lessen its impact on other, more marginalized people.
