What people really don't like about the New Atheists
I think they're actually doing remarkably well. The number of people who identify themselves as religious has dropped significantly, and a lot of people who would say "Christian" when they never actually went to church (outside of funerals and weddings) have stopped doing so. Providing a public identity and face for "Not believing any religion is true" and giving a rallying point for people who are fed up with being told that they live in a "Christian country" is going staggeringly well for them.
