Last year, the New York Times‘ Nicholas Kristof wrote about religious illiteracy, and told the world that secularists know next to nothing:
Secular Americans are largely ignorant about religion.
To be fair, he didn’t have a very positive impression of religious Americans’ knowledge, either, but the slam against secularist ignorance wasn’t just gratuitous, it was wrong. In truth, back in 2010, a 32-question Pew survey on U.S. religious knowledge asked respondents about the beliefs of various faiths. The highest-scoring group? Atheists and agnostics.
