IN AMERICA EVEN THE ATHEISTS ARE FAITHFUL:

Not All Nonbelievers Call Themselves Atheists (April 3, 2009, Pew Research)

According to the U.S. Religious Landscape Survey, conducted by the Pew Research Center's Forum on Religion & Public Life, 5% of American adults say they do not believe in God or a universal spirit, but only about a quarter (24%) of these nonbelievers actually call themselves atheists. In fact, 14% of Americans that do not believe in God self-identify as Christian and 4% as Jewish. Of the nonbelievers, 15% consider themselves agnostic.

It's really just a social pose.
