Truth vs Value

Atheists are annoyed that Christians are claiming outrageous things without evidence. Christians are telling lies that have negative consequences. Atheists are not claiming that all Christians always behave badly or that the Christian church has never done a good deed. The dispute is about the truth and reliability of religious claims. The value of religious faith is irrelevant when determining its truth. Christians turn every debate about the truth of Christianity to its psychological value and emotional appeal which is not at issue.
