OFFICIAL: Religious people are stupid

The Associated Press, the pillar of spin, just released an article based on a survey about religion and the stumbling fools that chase it. Atheists and agnostics scored highest, Jews and Mormons held their own, while Catholics and Protestants scored just above retardation. And so, I am proved correct once again.

I wonder how gnostics like me would have scored? Just in case you don't know-
