Why one particular atheist is angry.

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

If you've never met a biblical literalist, if you've never seen a classroom history timeline that begins with Adam and Eve in 10,000 BC, if you've never had someone tell you that Christianity is not a religion but the One Truth, if you've never seen Mel Gibson interviewed to the effect that his wife, all non-catholics, and all mainline Catholics after Vatican II are going to burn in hell... then maybe you don't quite grasp what that woman is talking about. Growing up around that kind of crap can poison you against even the mildest, kindest, most intellectually engaged religious people.

The following links do not represent the only kinds of religious practice in the US today, but they certainly represent actual people, and not just a few of them:

Extremism is bad in any form. The people in the links you cite come off the same way the poster in question does.

But extremists are not the best measure of most people. Mel Gibson certainly doesn't speak for all or even many Christians. And I'd hate to think that the blogger in question spoke for most atheists.

Christianity is not a religion but the One Truth

Well, I would be pretty surprised if a Christian took any other stance, actually.
