In my limited food service and retail sales experience, that is exactly what trolls look like when they come into your place of employment on Sunday and rip you a new one for working on the "sabbath" and then leave a very shabby tip.  I am very thankful I don't have to do that kind of work anymore.

Grace,

I found it very hard to watch too.  Evil trolls sometimes look almost human until they open their mouths.

I felt my brain slowly dripping out my ear as that "report" went on.  I had to shut it off.  I'm already loosing brain power to this summer cold.

There is also the "us/them" dichotomy, and as barriers break down and more people are included in "us", it's getting harder to pick a "them" to persecute.  That persecution is necessary to find someone to blame failures and evils of the world on.  Scapegoats are not hated because they are goats, but because the bad characteristics of the majority are projected onto them.

I should have provided a little more info.  I was not asking the question.  It is the title of an article in the Washington Post. The question (title) is the link to the article.  Although, Dom, I like your response to the question.

Why do Americans hate Atheists?

Because while many Americans claim to believe in a god and an after-life, they are hysterical, like anyone else, when a loved one dies.

The reason for this, is that they have doubts about those beliefs, although they wish them to be true.  The church, popes, ministers, gurus or whatever, are there to reinforce the idea that they will live forever with their dead relatives.

On the other hand, atheists remind them of their doubts.  Not only are their doubts hard to face, but they look at atheists as a group of people who laugh at these doubts and embrace them as truth.

They see us as a threat to those beliefs.  Somehow, we will reinforce their doubts, as well as the possibility of bringing down the rath and disfavor of a god, for the very nerve to question such lunacy.

We are what they fear within themselves.  We have lost salvation, and they do not want to stand too close.  We are the ones that might influence their children, in a way that will prevent them from spending eternity together.

Of course it doesn't make sense, but look who we are talking about!
