Day 6: 15 Day Atheist Challenge

How do you feel about so-called "militant atheists" such as Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, and Sam Harris? While I know of Sam Harris, I am unfamiliar with his work. I know that Hitchens is an atheist, but I know him more for his political writing than for his views on religion. I've read two of Dawkins books (The Blind Watchmaker and The Greatest Show On Earth), and liked both of them, I plan on reading others. That said, I don't much like the term "militant atheist." The term seems to be applied to "atheists who speak their minds." Which is then followed by "Why can't you people just be quiet?"
