There are an awful lot of people who don't believe there is some being watching over them that cares deeply about them, and in particular what they do in their bedroom and with whom, but reject the label "atheist" because they feel like it implies something political or sociological. Or maybe they think Dawkins is a jerk or something. I view these people as de facto atheists with a semantics issue.

More U.S. Protestants Have No Specific Denominational Identity

Protestant specific religion identity dropping from 50% to 30%, Catholics flat, "No religion" generally increasing, rising at a faster rate than altie protestants and may pass Catholics in a few years.
