Are they upset that we're here or that we're speaking?

In the US, there's a certain apoplexy that the religions right feel when ever the word atheist (BTW: Booga-booga) is mentioned.
There's no real understanding the strident responses to a few books making fairly reasoned and low-key arguments about G-d. The reaction is well in excess of any criticism.
It's well put here in this review of the situation: Review: The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins | By genre | Guardian Unlimited Books
Money quote:
Anyway, you can see why atheists snigger. The first real taste of their own rhetorical medicine and the godly are reduced to incomprehensible, frothing rage.
BTW: Militant Atheist
