Because athiests have morons like Christopher Hitchens on their side. It's understandable. I couldn't sit through a single one of his pseudo intellectual speeches. This said the man is suposed to be an athority on atheism and yet at no point does he strive to make you confident in your choice. No, he's far too busy yammering on about how amazing he is and how easy he could take all the dignity from Christianity. It's almost as if he's just completely full of hot air.
