Christians have to be pushed to giving by the threat of hell. Atheists give because of our own kindness and warmth.

There's certainly no evidence that non-believers are less generous or less altruistic than believers. I think non-believers are generally more inclusive than religionists.

There are now non-religious organisations all around the world. In the USA they are often have 'athiest' or 'secular' in their title.

Rationalists don't generally want to kill each other over ideology or dogma; nor do they riot because of cartoons challenging "sacred" beliefs. For a rational person ALL beliefs may be challenged. Some religionists cannot even stand their most absurd superstitions having to face satire.
