Additionally, more than two-thirds of atheists are men. If they’re going to badger geologists, hockey teams, and historical societies, surely atheists have a righteous comeuppance on the horizon, too.

We really have to ask ourselves who we are if we lack the moral courage to inform our Arabic, Amerindian, black, and Indian neighbors there is no God. People from ancestrally Muslim lands are the least atheistic of all, so good whites should start by explaining to imams across the country that not only is Islam wrong about women, it is also wrong about Allah. Be sure to capture the interactions on a GoPro. Good luck and Godspeed!

GSS variables used: GOD(1)(2)(3-5)(6), RACECEN1(1), HISPANIC(1), YEAR(2012-2018), SEX

A couple of parenthetical notes–most people are firm theists and the survey only interviews those aged 18 or older. That is why non-Hispanic whites appear at first blush to be overrepresented in total in the graphical depiction.
