Comment 2 by LaurieB :

This is not petty and small minded.

But it isn't what you or I think, it is what the the world thinks. We have to look at the big picture.

The majority of people are not particularly interested in the battle between atheists and Christians, they have other things in their minds. When they come across stories lie this, they will think atheists are being petty and small minded and that's not good for the cause.

Sure, atheists might win a few minor battles, but lose potential supporters in theprocess.
