For the 59% of Americans who believe that religion is primarily about living a good life and doing the right thing, they must find it frightening when atheists say it would be a good thing if earth dropped all religion. Perhaps we atheists should formulate our opposition as disdaining:

We atheists are even more in favour of treating our neighbours fairly than Christians are (Christians usually make exceptions for blacks, gays, women or children.) We have no objection to the music, the rituals or the special foods.
