Last month, in an online public poll, we asked 1000 people to give a rating of how they feel about eight different religious groups
Respondents were asked to rate a variety of groups on a "feeling thermometer" ranging from 0 to 100 where 0 degrees means as cold and negative as possible and 100 degrees means as warm and positive as possible.
Tied for highest warm feelings were Atheists and Buddhists (both averaged 64 degrees). This was followed by Jewish, Protestants, Hindu and Catholic (58-62 degrees). The two lowest groups were Muslims (50 degrees) and Mormons (47 degrees).
