← New Atheists Are Not Great

Atheists may be selling books, but they're not making converts. Christianity is --
Christianity makes more converts amongst those who are already religious. On the other hand, agnostic atheism is the default position one is born into, and the point is that Christianity is converting fewer atheists than ever before.

That is to say: the rate at which Christians are failing to convert new generations of atheists is surpassing the rate at which they are succeeding in converting other theists.

D'Souza's statement is correct, but misleading.
