Millennial generation has a problem with Muslims

Just read an interesting article on Friendly Atheist.

For the most part I wasn't surprised: Democrats aren't courting secularists, atheists, or non-theists despite the overwhelming. No big surprise there, especially considering the whole God in the platform issue at the convention.

The thing that shocked and scared me about this story was this chart. Up til now every statistic about my generation has been encouraging: increased openness, highest acceptance of LGBT people and issues, least racist, least sexist, and most atheists by percentage.

Then I see that 64% would be uncomfortable with a Muslim president, and I realize that a very horrible type of prejudice has made it through whatever barrier has set us apart.
