As I posted on the site:

While some atheists can be overly confrontational, what's really at issue is the rabidly religious falsely equating Dawkins, Hitchens, et al, to "proselytizers", or worse, fundamentalists.

The rabidly religious are falsely asserting that atheists are using the same tactics that religions use, which simply isn't the case. They can't (or don't want to) bring themselves up by amending their own behaviours (e.g. stopping their violence). Instead, the rabidly religious seek to "bring atheism down" to their level by making unfounded accusations.

Which is why it is so important, when debating some creatard on the internet, to take the time to A. stay calm, and B. do the homework. It keeps you honest, it makes you smarter, and it always feels better to hit one out of the park.

well, I guess in a way that means they are admitting that they don;t know how to behave

but, when atheists start suicide bombing, then they may have a point (other than their heads)

as to why we should be calm, well, it doesn't matter what we do or say, because they will claim we're rude, arrogant, aggressive, etc

with absolutely no awareness that it's them who have sought us out to tell us we're going to hell unless we go down for their god
