The term "militant atheist" has been thrown around a lot these days, mostly by non-athesits. So allow me to enlighten you.
Let's get one thing straight here. One of these things just doesn't belong. So-called "militant" atheists are merely people who speak against theism. We are not murderers, nor are we inciting murder or violence. We are not calling for war or homicide or terrorism or genocide. We are "extreme" only in the sense that we are doing something not usually done. We are not anywhere near as bad, dangerous, or ludicrous as the genuinely militant members of the worlds' major religions. Learn to separate the people fighting with guns and bombs from the people "fighting" with words and cartoons, and stop grouping the latter in with the former.
I am an unapologetic atheist. An outspoken, frank, blunt, and critical atheist. But I am not a radical, extreme, or oppressive atheist. And most of all, I am not a militant atheist, and I do not appreciate the innacurate insinuations of violence and intolorance the use of that term brings.
