Atheism and a general lack of conformity to major religions has a tendency to be viewed poorly in the public eye. I know from networking and just the usual socializing that those that fit that demographic, as a rule, are unhappy with that notion.
When you are struggling with money in life, it is churches and ministries that offer hope with food banks and shelters.
