Well, as long as you believe in SOME pathological delusion.
Over at Pharyngula, PZ links to Kevin Drum discussing how, even if a distressing number of Americans might think of Islam as a bogus religion based on violence, hatred and all that stuff, those same Americans think even less of those folks who simply have no religious beliefs whatsoever.
Apparently, it doesn't matter if you violently disagree with your neighbour's religion -- just the fact that both of you embrace some kind of meaningless, superstitious rubbish is enough of a common bond for you to get together to revile those Godless unbelievers.
Well, whatever gets you talking to each other, I suppose. Glad to be of assistance.
