What is wrong with prejudice against atheists?


The whole palaver of human rights, which seem mostly to be about restrictions on human rights, is slowly going to come to Romania, is already here, as this article from Romania-Insider suggests. The last clause of this sentence shocked me.
"The Roma minority, the Jewish community, the Hungarian minority, and the gay community are most affected by the hate speech in Romania, but so are atheists".
What is wrong with prejudice against atheists, for heaven's sake?

Anti-atheist prejudice is a mark of a devout country. Romania is the most religious country in Europe but religiosity and modern liberalism are uneasy bedfellows.
