Atheists Are Unwelcome In Most American Families.

According to a Pew Research Center report, Political Polarization in the American Public, nearly two thirds of Americans would be unhappy with an atheist joining their family.

Those identifying as conservative, white, non-Hispanic, evangelical Protestant, Republican and Roman Catholic, were more likely to be unhappy with an atheist in-law.

When asked:  "How would you react if an immediate family member were to marry an atheist?"

41% of democrats would be unhappy, compared with 73% of republicans.
