Along the lines of a disruptive force I guess, one that actively campaigns to see the end of religion, a force that is both divisive and confrontational. And rather than placating the religious traditions, they would like to see them overturned, and replaced with noble secular forces, though this is commonly advocated for using non-violence.

It's not so much the "sudden" occurrence aspect of it, but rather that tumultuous nature of the anti-theism movement as a whole.
