Tolkien and Atheists | Modern Atheism |

There's nothing about being an atheist that would cause a person to be "militant" in the "denial" of Tertius' god, although it is true that some atheists are. But when you have people (say, people like Tertius) who spend a lot of time trying to tell atheists how they can't be moral, how they can't enjoy life, how they can't understand what "real love" is, and so forth, it's only to be expected that some atheists will get pretty annoyed and start spending a lot of time returning the "love" and attacking back.
