Why do many confirmed atheists A) Vibrate over the mere mention of God (The Father); B) Christ (The Son, the God-Man in Hypostatic Union during the Church Age); C) The Holy Spirit (Third Person of The Trinity, who though invisible reveals the accurate and absolute truth contained in the inspired Wo s just move on.

Because when a back window of a car is dusty and dirty, it absolutely begs for someone to write a message and wipe away some of the dangerous, obscuring murk that causes the blind running into and over other people or poles.
They ARE there, you know, not just you ALL ALONE with ALL THE TRUTH AND GOODNESS, sneering at everybody else's thinking. No wonder they react.

It's too important to ignore because you are closing off human minds.
Fundamentalist Christianity is one of the biggest and most damaging cults around, up there with militant, fundamentalist Islamism. How much better and more advanced would the world be without them? You ignore common sense and obvious established science, wanting to cast us back into the Dark Ages. You confuse immature vulnerable young minds and send them off on a wild guilt- ridden goose chase for years. You downgrade women, Jews and homosexuals and ostracize any person or theologian or priest in their own ranks who raises sincere questioning with a hope to advancement. You provoke people killing prejudices of the worst sort. The Church acquiesced with Hitler's persecution of the "Christ-killing" Jewish people (and homosexuals and Jehovah Witnesses), and conveniently ignored the obvious signs of of the smell of burning human flesh across the so-called Christian Germany countryside.
The only answer is giving some serious non-violent confrontation to wake you up into modern reality. Finally scientists are answering back in force the misinformation and reactionary belittling of past advancement out of the superstitious Dark Ages. You want to lead us back into it and you expect us to go quietly!?
The Baptist Church in your south supported and aquieseced (on good Bible verses) in violent and murderous racist actions against African-Americans, who happen to get there from a Church sanctioned slavery trade. Eventually enlightened, questioning caring Christians stopped the treating of fellow human like animals, whatever their African belief systems. The decent caring open thinking Christians are the light fundmentalists need to look towards, not hate-peddling freelance pastors.
The Catholic Church damns contraception in a world that is absolutely burdgeoing with over-population and its adherents in South America and elsewhere have to exist off rubbish tips like rats. Its NO LONGER just a matter of just ignore your mind-numbing arrogant other-pushing away stances and go to the movies.
I will never hate you, for that just pulls us all into quicksand, but I do get angry sometimes, very angry. And I wish a few more would. Sometimes anger is an act of compassion. Yes, a paradox, if you ever think about such things.
You want some vibration? You just got it.
