  • In the Bible Belt? Absolutely. I lost my best friend because I'm an atheist. Sad.

  • No, I don't think so, but I do believe that politicians should be the least trusted minority group in the USA.

  • I am a Christian. I have my own reasons why I believe the way I do. Atheists have THEIR reasons why THEY believe the way THEY do. That does NOT make them untrustworthy. You want to know who I find untrustworthy? The people who make the claim that atheists are untrustworthy. Good golly, what an assumption!

  • I think it's true. There's is a popular misconception that someone who doesn't in any God is immoral and corrupt.

  • I have to admit I didn't read the article but I disagree with the question as you stated it.

    I'm Atheist and I'm trustworthy. So are my parents and closest friends..

    Just because I don't believe in God doesn't make me a bad person. I have values and morals. I'm a loyal wife and friend. I'm a damn good mom. I work, and volunteer in my community. I do all the things that good Christians do but I cook Breakfast and hang out with my fam on Sunday morning instead of going to church. I don't pray but I put faith into positive thinking and I believe in Karma. So, what would me not believing in God and organized religion have to do with being trustworthy?
