If it is a popular opinion, I tend to swim against the current.

RE: Why are Atheists hated?
Like others have said, I think it's because we're a sort of reality check and people are honestly scared of it on a deep level of consciousness. They are afraid of losing that hope even if they don't realise it.

I remember I had similar feelings when I was a believer and people would criticise some "plot holes" in the whole religion thing. You came up with excuses or explanations to justify something that didn't make sense to your human brain.

Atheists are hated cause we are like...so hot. Every hates the good looking people.

Seriously people hate atheists because we are the reminder that they are probably wrong. No oNE likes being wrong.

The belief in god and the bible becomes so ingrained in a person that the mere thought of being an atheist is incomprehensible.

Yes, I think that is a huge part of it. One of my very distinct memories of a sermon which actually impacted me as a child (there were not many because I was really never into the whole thing even though I believed in god) was of our minister speaking of Christian persecution. He shouted from the pulpit about how atheists persecuted Christians, and how Madelyn Murray O'Hare removed prayer from schools. My parents rarely discussed sermons after church, but I remember after we prayed over our meal at lunch, my dad said it was important that Christians be able to withstand persecution, because one woman like Madelyn Murray O'Hare could take away our rights. I hated her for doing it. Now, I admire the hell out of her bravery!

Then you have conservative D-list celebrities like Phil Robertson telling everyone we have no morals. Even more mainstream celebrities like Oprah and Steve Harvey have publically made anti-atheist statements.

RE: Why are Atheists hated?
Hatred or more truly existent, a distrust for those who are atheists by religious folks isn't something I quite grasp. It's right there when they are interviewed though, people have less trust of people of different religions than their own and Atheists, at least in American polling.

A lot of it stems from unfamiliarity but what they think and why they would articulate they wouldn't trust someone of that supposed group is beyond my knowledge.
