I consider myself secular humanist but I'll never be an atheist.  I know there is a technical difference.  I do not believe that I can know for certain there is a God. My problem is not believing the Bible is divine in any way, I feel like I don't know what God would be without some text somewhere giving me an indication. The lack of belief in the Bible as inspired word makes it all up in the air for me and abstract.

All of that being said I find a few atheists as obnoxious and annoying as the fundamentalist Pat Robertson type. When you get to the point that you think less of a person for what they believe alone and not their actions you cross a line with me.  Atheists can be just as corrupt as any Jesus cult member. The logic here  can be applied to any minority.  Being a member of a minority doesn't make you bad by default but neither does it make you good by default. That other part of the equation I think is missed by obnoxious atheists.  Being secular doesn't make you bad for not believing certainly that is laughable.  However,  any atheist can be lacking in morals and decency.   I wish my fellow secularists would also stop calling the religious morons or other insults. Really you don't see the hypocrisy?

I think we all have a crutch. Your crutch may not be a man with a white beard living above the clouds but it is another crutch unnamed and unknown but to you perhaps.

I swear I get tired of extremists no matter what the extreme they represent.
