Do I seem like I give a f**ck what these "leaders" say?<quoted text>
So do the leaders of your new atheist movement.
I pretty much don't-- I've never read a single book by Dawkins, for example.
You are under the false impression that atheism is a kind of "thing".
It's not-- atheism is simply disbelief in stupid crap like gods.
That is **it**.
There **are** people who happen to be atheists, who are against religious abuse-- and there is a strong movement in that arena.
But it's not organized at all, and there are no leaders.
