"Angstheist" is an ugly, ill-conceived word.

I don't go looking for angstheists either, but when one shows up in the company of normal everyday atheists, it's useful to have a term that distances the one from the other.

Try finding out everything you believed is a lie. See how well you take it when you've emotionally invested in this lie.

Your luck you can draw lines in your group, in ours every time an idiot says something stupid in the name of Chirstinaity, the American media trips over itself to put them in the spotlight.

Thus these people can become our representative, no matter how small they are in practice.

So do yourself a favor and call them "angsty." Don't vomit this ill-conceived term like it's a sophisticated portmanteau.

Or even be prejudiced against to the point of hiding your affiliation. Atheism is, for all intents and purposes, an undermined minority.

Nailed it. There's a reason there are a lot of pissed of atheists out there. You touched on just one of the multitude of reasons.

Yes, you can say ASS!

DrAlbert, you realize the word is a derogatory term, yes? It's supposed to be irritating.

In my experience, most people in the media and elsewhere believe that atheists are evil scum that worship Satan even without putting representatives in the spotlight. So.

Yeah, but it's not irritating because it's derogatory. It's irritating because it's ill-conceived and so makes whoever utters it sound incredibly daft.
