Yeah. It frightens them to realize that there are people who not only see religion for the bullshit that it is, but also refuse to drink of the bullshit and call it "honey".<quoted text>
They are so desperate to find something to attack us with, so they link us to evil dictators such as Pol Pot and Stalin as if we atheists had a bible in which these murderers were honored as prophets. What they cannot seem to grasp is that atheism is an idea, not a religion or philosophy. It's one single commandment is to not believe in a God. We have no holy books to link us.
They hate that last bit-- because they have drunk so much bullshit themselves, they resent anyone who doesn't do that.
They are pathetic.
