Some atheists are activists because atheism is generally and often deliberately misconstrued.

Some atheists are angy about being misled by religious people and suffering any number of personal losses because of it.

Some atheists try to warn other people about what they wish they had known earlier, so others can avoid the same mistakes.

And some atheists like to take the religious down a notch or two because of all of the above.

Very understandable. I sometimes react to what seems like insensitivity toward theists and it is good to keep in mind that there is plenty of reason for it.

“Tiger got to hunt, bird got to fly;
Man got to sit and wonder 'why, why, why?'
Tiger got to sleep, bird got to land;
Man got to tell himself he understand.”

― Kurt Vonnegut, Cat's Cradle
