Once again, atheists win oppression poker!
Asked if they'd be willing to vote for a "generally well-qualified" candidate with the followign characterisitics, here's how the tally went in the Feb. 9- 11 poll.(Emphasis & link added.) Woohoo! What a wonderful run-down of American prejudice. Note that the traits that the Republican front-runners have are towards the bottom of the list (Mormon, 3rd marriage, 72 years). Of course, it's early, so these polls don't reflect set-in-stone opinions.
A woman 88%
Married for third time 67%
72 years of age 57%
A homosexual 55%
An atheist 45%
Just for the record, I don't think any of these traits would stop me from voting for a candidate I otherwise liked. However, someone who has been married three times (barring exceptional extenuating circumstances) definitely does not get to go on about "family values" without getting a big thwack from the hypocricy stick.
