Sydney Anglicans confirm what most know... for some Christians, 'hate mongering' is the only identifiable Christian trait!

An article in the Vancouver Sun titled 'Believers Deem Atheists as Untrustworthy as Rapists' was posted on the Sydney Anglican 'breaking news' website. The article confirms that some self identified Christians have trust issues that extend to members of other religious groups, gays and feminists. The article states that the prejudice had a significant impact on what kinds of jobs people said they would hire atheists to do. "People are willing to hire an atheist for a job that is perceived as low-trust, for instance as a waitress," said Gervais. "But when hiring for a high-trust job like daycare worker, they were like, nope, not going to hire an atheist for that job."
Atheists however don't necessarily favour other atheists over Christians or anyone else ... they seem to think that religion is not an important signal for who you can trust.

Hey Bert, it's commendable that Sydney Anglicans are upholding the spread of prejudice. It's taken some of the finist clergy in the world to build that level of fear and hate ... everyone knows that you can't trust an atheist around children!
