I was recently informed that atheists have no morals. Thoughts?

I was informed by a coworker who did not know I was atheist that atheists have no morals. After I nicely told him I was an atheist, he awkwardly looked at me and shut up. My supervisor got angry and told me I was being offensive. Apparently, it's okay to label an entire group of people as immoral, but it's not okay to simply state your lack of religion.

I would like to know what you say when people call you immoral or what you would day if someone said this to you. I'm just wondering in general, not necessarily in a work setting. I live in the Bible Belt, so this comes up in my life more often than one would expect.

*Sorry for any typos. I'm on my tablet.

RE: "the US in particular is a very dangerous place for atheism" - not nearly as much so as in Islamic countries. But as the "abnormal" becomes more common, it ceases to be abnormal.

Perhaps, but who wants to hang with a bunch of the lord's sheep anyways? A few free-thinking friends are way better than having to suppress a face-palm every few minutes.

Gets to the nitty gritty at about 30 minutes and at 40 ish minutes is the crux of it  maybe post this for your co worker friend ...
