I would think that most atheists would agree that there can be a lot of evil associated with religion. Most of them do have a "mafia" morality. I will admit that a lot of good has been done in the name of religion, but then so has a lot of evil too.<quoted text>
A militant atheist is one who is hostile towards religion. They differ from moderate atheists because they have the desire to propagate atheism and also hold religion to be harmful.
Militant atheism was an integral part of the French Revolution, Soviet Union, Cultural Revolution, and is expresses itself today in the ideas of the New Atheist authors.
Militant atheist: All religion does is cause violence! Blah! Blah! Blah!
And I have serious doubts about your claim that there was a serious atheistic force behind the French Revolution. Links please.
