Because atheism isn't all about promoting sex
A young atheist who has fought to keep religion out of our schools is honored by being nominated for a First Amendment award named after the man who taught the world how to make millions by turning women into slabs of meat for mens' sexual gratification. I know, I know. Not all atheists go that direction. But here's the point: most do. Since I was in college till now, most atheists I've run across see abandoning God and P.A.R.T.Y.! as one and the same. And while not all atheists support the Sam "I hope someday we can wipe all the religions I don't like off the planet" Harris approach to interfaith dialogue, many do. And more to the point, while the extremists and radicals of religion are holed up in the mountains of Afghanistan, or in some backward hillside of Montana behind an electric fence brandishing a shotgun, those of the Harris/Hitchens/Dawkins 'ban religion, for we hates it' school are media celebrities, millionaires, and professors at the world's most prestigious institutions of higher learning. That's just an observation.
