Atheists, What's With the Condescension?

Whenever I log onto a website or a forum where Atheists are commenting on religion or religious believers, I am struck by the overwhelming condescension of Atheists in their posts.

If I were to take their word for it, Atheists would have me believing that all religious believers are drooling, bucktoothed, redneck morons who had religion beaten into them as children.

The question is, why?

Where did this cartoonish impression of religion come from? TV? Movies? Pop culture?

Why do people who claim to be the "mature, logical ones" spread such obvious lies passed about as blanket statements?

Or do Atheists really believe all they post on the internet?

I'm convinced most of them DO believe what they post on the internet.

So much for "maturity" and "logic".
