Embittered atheists

I found an interesting quote about these fiery militant atheists, proselytizers of “misotheism”, from no less that George Orwell:

George Orwell identified this sort of ‘atheist’ in the character of Bozo, in Down and Out in Paris and London: ‘He was an embittered atheist (the sort of atheist who does not so much disbelieve in God as personally dislike Him)’.11 Interestingly, in The God Delusion, Dawkins carries on about what he doesn’t like about the God he doesn’t believe in.

Found here:
Is Richard Dawkins an atheist?

Like the line from Shakespeare:

The lady doth protest too much, methinks.
