You're absolutely 100% wrong and don't know what you're talking about. Atheism has no constructs, no ideals, no beliefs, no standards. It is simply a lack of a belief. It is a moving beyond religion.
Again, I'm not denying that there have been bad atheists. There surely have been. But it wasn't BECAUSE they were atheist. It was simply because they were bad people.
I know you really want to have Atheism be a religion that can be blamed for things like this so you can have your tit for tat... but it's simply nonsense.
