Muslims surpass atheists as most unpopular group in US

(RNS) A new study finds atheists and Muslims still top the list of the least trusted Americans.

Americans’ disapproval of Muslims has jumped to 45.5 percent from just over 26 percent 10 years ago, the last time the question was asked.

And “nones” — those who say they have no religious affiliation, but may also have spiritual or religious beliefs — are also unpopular. This is significant because nones now make up one-third of the U.S. population.

The study found:

  • Almost half of those surveyed — 48.9 percent — said they would disapprove of their child marrying a Muslim, up from 33.5 percent in 2006.

The study’s authors — sociologists Penny Edgell, Douglas Hartmann, Evan Stewart and Joseph Gerteis — describe the jump in disapproval of Muslims as a major change and are focusing now on identifying reasons for it.

“Religion becomes a signal and a marker, an easy shorthand for Americans’ moral judgment,” Hartmann said. “But that is not the only thing going on with Muslims. It’s more complicated.”

That’s just the last ten years and doesn’t include:

  • Mass Muslim immigration wreaking havoc on local neighborhoods and schools
  • Rapes and other non-deadly violence by Muslims
  • Endless lawsuits by Muslims forcing Islam on Americans
  • Billions of tax dollars wasted on security from Muslim terrorists,
  • Loss of rights and freedom of speech to Islamic supremacists, and
  • Constant  media lies about Islam and the false narrative of Islamophobia as Muslims are slaughtering people around the world

No, it’s not complicated. At all. Americans are waking up…albeit too late.

  1. I can’t image why?

  2. Oh gee-wiz, I wonder why we do not trust muzzies. It’s not hard to figure out why when we know the muzzies goal is to kill all Non-muzzies.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
