I see progress, though it’s progress at a plate tectonics pace:
If an atheist was entered in the presidential race,
For the first time in our history it seems to be the case—
The majority’s not instantly opposed!
Fifty-four percent of voters told the pollsters “yes, we would”
If the atheist in question, every other way, was good
We are still the most unpopular—let that be understood
But the case is not immediately closed.
The new Gallup Poll is out. When it comes to politics, atheists are still the most biased against… but for the first time since 1958, pollsters find a slight majority willing to vote for an otherwise-qualified atheist.
Like I said, progress. Slooooooooooooooooooooow progress. But the right direction.
But hey, you want the good news?
The future looks good.
