See atheists as human beings? We can't have that! If we do, the religious won't be able to foment hate and violence against them.
Which, of course, is the intent on both parts. Atheists want to show that we are civil and moral people, and the religious want to mass murder us.

Don't be ridiculous.
For one thing, A I suspect that small minority of atheists are neither civil nor moral and that a larger number, perhaps the majority of atheists, simply don;t worry about religious people opinions at all. The activists who put up billboard are only the tip of the atheist iceberg and represent only one of many points of view within our community.
Moreover, I see no evidence that the religious want to do physical harm to atheists. If they did, the more volatile among them would be killing atheists almost daily. Here in the U/S, they number over 200 million, after all, and if even one percent felt as you say they do, we'd have a million assassins at work.
What I do see , both personally and through the media, is peaceful, if argumentative coexistence. Most people that I've run across in my life would rather get along with others than fuss and fight. When they start running across likable people who fall into the categories they think that they abhor, most tend to suppress and eventually modify their views rather than show enmity or hostility.

we just disagree
