Atheists: No God, just whining

This is amusing reading:
"I can't stand atheists – but it's not because they don't believe in God. It's because they're crashing bores...and their fixation with the fine points of Christianity.

The problem with atheists – and what makes them such excruciating snoozes – is that few of them are interested in making serious metaphysical or epistemological arguments...

What primarily seems to motivate atheists isn't rationalism but anger – anger...So, atheists, how about losing the tired sarcasm and boring self-pity and engaging believers seriously?"

At first I thought this was a parody of the thought-processes of a typical anti-anti-theist. A bit like this.

I'm still not 100% sure it isn't a parody. It's just a little bit too stereotyped to be real surely?

I should ask the Guardian if they'll let me right a piece called "I hate religious believers, they smell".
