Umm , well recent research shows that Atheists are the most hated minority in the USA ( Source ) . And uh, a few people debated in the religion debate section; nothing new, really.

"APPEAL TO POPULARITY: This fallacy tries to support a conclusion about a policy or point of view by citing the extensive acceptance it enjoys. The root mistake in this fallacy is failure to pay attention to what the reasons are, if any, for why the majority thinks the way that it does.

1. Everybody (or a majority, etc) thinks that X is right
2. Therefore, X is right.

This is closely related to APPEAL TO COMMON PRACTICE, which is more of a blame-deflecting device; the root of the fallacy lies in a failure to give a real reason why the questioned practice should be continued. Since everybody (or a majority, etc) is doing X, then it is not so bad for us to do X."

I'm not sure if this truly applies to my argument about the majority of the population believing in a religion to make it right. I don't know, just thought I'd bring it up.

Yes, it truly does apply to what you said.
