Why one particular atheist is angry.

I agree with pretty much everything she had to say.
So I'll just add, "amen."

It's in a religious context, so I'm not sure discussing this as a "human" would make much sense? Let me use her first three examples to illustrate:
1) 45% of Americans would vote for an atheist president
2) atheist conventions need extra security v. fundamentalists
3) atheist soldiers sidelined/threatened

They specifically deal with the issue of godlessness, so how could you discuss these without putting them in the atheistic framework? Are you saying that she should have spoken as a human-for-atheists (lack of a better term) :)? A lot of this is grievances she has specifically AS an atheist, not just a human. But I still don't understand how that negates someone of faith from sharing her viewpoint on specific circumstances, or extrapolating further to fit their experience? She says she's speaking against particulars, not religion as a general idea. So why feel lumped out?
