myths about atheism

Long rant in the Irish Times today from Michael Nugent, chairman of Atheist Ireland. Bottom line: he thinks non-atheists promote myths about atheists which they then use to denigrate & undermine what they (don't?) believe. 

Can you spell 'irony' boys and girls? This is what most people of faith, particularly Christians, have been saying for years about militant atheists. Heck, they see it as their standard practice. Richard Dawkins was driven so scatty by people accusing him of creating straw-man versions of Christianity for him to mock and pick apart that he actually put a new section in later editions of the God Delusion denying that was what he was doing. Oddly enough, the suggestions continue.

So all I can say to Michael of Atheist Ireland and his woes is: Welcome to the club, Michael!
