    In a civil rights analogy:

    You wanted to let black people drink at public water fountains.

    The "militant atheists" wanted to give black people equal rights everywhere, not just at the lunch counter.

    Ya, they made your tweaking of the dominant power structure more difficult, but that's because they rejected the dominant power structure.

    You may be annoyed by those militant loud-mouthed atheists, but if you think you would have gotten anything without them, you're wrong. They pushed the Overton window.

    Did you support Occupy Wall Street? Do you see the parallels?
