Good news, Jews! America loves you.

A new survey conducted by the Pew Research Center indicates that Jews are America’s favorite religious group, JTA reports.

The survey of 3,217 adults conducted in June asked respondents to rate their feelings toward various religious groups on a scale of 1 to 100, with 1 being coldest, 100 warmest and 50 meaning they have neither positive nor negative feelings.

Jews rated 63, slightly ahead of Catholics (62) and evangelicals (61). Buddhists, Hindus and Mormons prompted neutral ratings, from 48 to 53. Muslims were given the worst rating, at 40. Atheists rated 41.

I think we all owe the creators of The O.C. a debt of gratitude for America’s philo-Semitism:
