"Atheists, please read my heathen manifesto

Atheists are too often portrayed as bishop-bashing extremists and any meaningful debate with the religious becomes impossible. How can this be remedied?"

Interesting read. Very thoughtful.

That was good. Still, I'm more comfortable calling myself an atheist than a heathen, lol.

I don't think it's appropriate to respect religion. However, there is a time and a place to discuss the validity of an individual's religious convictions in an interpersonal setting: only when they are open to do so.
