Well said.Oh and as a follow up I have noticed many non believers hide away from the term atheist even though they are without theism. Often they at some point cite negative traits associated with the term atheist that are by the way placed on the term by theists. Or how a theist may perhaps be offended by someone calling themselves an atheist. Why should I care about their bigotry? That is their issue not mine.
It's time to put the theists on the defensive. They have defined us as untrustworthy, morally unfit, and the cause of all that is bad:
"Pope Blames Atheists for Holocaust, Ignores Catholic Complicity"
To be honest, I resent the hell out of that, and would like to return the favor. We define ourselves now, not them. And I predict that as our numbers swell further, we will be defining them as well. Look at how we've handled Dim in this thread in his attempt to derogate science. He's been made the thread's dunce and chew toy. That's a good model for how to threat an overtly contemptuous and disrespectful theist - return it tenfold, and with righteous indignation.
