I agree. That's what annoys me.
I grew up in an Evangelical church environment (at least from age 9-14) and one of the things that, in retrospect, bothers me is how the pastor of one of the churches I went to was constantly attacking Islam, not because of the principles of the faith (this was before suicide bombing became mainstream) but because he didn't think that the very first mosque in the small white town I grew up in deserved any attention and that his church (church no. 3453 in the city) deserved more praise. In essence, he was preaching hatred and one time my brother wrote a letter to him. He has never apologized although years later he was involved in some sort of adultery scandal that involved a child out of wedlock and shit. He's kind of a hypocrite.
I feel like a lot of atheists are doing the same thing. They are not willing to let people have their beliefs in God because they feel that they can disprove God's existence with science. They even go so far as to shove it down your throat, much like the evangelical church or militant muslims do. It disappoints me that their main message is that they can disprove the existence of God but they result to the exact same tactics that monotheists do to get their message out there.
