The religitards are ignorant hypocrites.
Half the time, they call atheism a religion, falsely attributing to atheists the failings of religion. Religion is an ideology, just like fascism and communism. Atheism is an absense of ideolgy, just as it's an absense of belief in "gods" - not one "god". All "gods" are equally fictional, including the christian/jewish/muslim "god".
The other half of the time, the religitards say atheism isn't a religion so they can refuse to show respect for the rights of atheists. They refuse to show the respect (and tax breaks) for atheists that they demand for themselves.

Atheism is harmless - theists have to invent something to hate, that's why they lie about atheists.
Its the same reason they lie about "sin" being real. They have to find a spiritual fault with you otherwise they can't sell you their "cure" - Christianity.

big key word here is the word "sell" - the story-telling is a path to money, status, and power for its marketers, if they are clever enough. and yukky enough, a path to a type of sex also (through abuse of power) in too many cases
