That sums up it up perfectly, and shows who he really resembles. I lovingly keep that assigned as the background and on screensavers of my computers.
Okay...but that was not my point.

Every time you say this I ask you the same exact question: What is the best label for someone who has a problem with everyday people's faith and religious practice, especially if that person is clearly doing good and is not evangelizing their faith?

even simpler than that ozzy.

list personality types. list the personality traits of an extreme theist. one would suggest that their are not those personality types in atheism. or don't "evangelize" their atheism? Its nonsensical to deny it. But I get the "our religion" is better and has the real truth. I mean, because its true.

I don't know. An atheist is a person that doesn't believe in God. Anything else about that person is extraneous to being an atheist. Why do you keep tacking extra labels on people and then avoid answering questions about it?

Atheists wear the black hats in Ozzy's oater. Christians and other religious types wear the white hats.

Or, if we need a more current (somewhat) media reference, let's go to South Park, Ozzyville: 'Atheists are bad...m'kay?"
