Salon publishes an article which declares: Christopher "Hitchens’s “God Is Not Great” is an intellectually shameful book". Why are atheists so low-class and so low brow?

Christopher Hitchens was a literary critic and considered to be among the most eloquent  atheists of our time. So if any atheist could escape the "low brow" and low-class image that atheism has strongly developed for itself in recent years, you would think it would be him.  And make no mistake about it, atheism has has developed such an image.

For example, Dr. Sam Harris is a founder of the New Atheism movement. Dr. Harris is quite aware of the stigma surrounding atheism and has even advocated that atheists no longer call themselves atheists. In fact, Dr. Harris has said concerning the label of atheist, "It's right next to child molester as a designation."

Christopher Hitchens has not escaped the low-class, scoundrel image that tars atheism though. Salon just published an article on Hichen's entitled Christopher Hitchens’ lies do atheism no favors  The article said and I quote: "Hitchens’s “God Is Not Great” is an intellectually shameful book."   Now this is coming from the secular left friendly website Salon.  It calls Hitchen's book "shameful". 

Previously, I published an article entitled: Christianity has great depth and sophistication. Also, 7 reasons why atheism has developed a reputation of being low-class and "low brow"   I gave very strong reasons why the atheist community is a low-class community filled with "low brow" members.

 For example, Reddit atheism, also known as r/atheism, is one of the largest internet groups of atheists.  Mashable reported that Reddit atheism recently grew to 2 million members so it may very well be the largest online community of atheists.

Mashable recently said:
In recent years, r/atheism has become known for memes, images, quote pictures and other content viewed by some as "low brow."
Next time a low brow atheist con artist  tries to convince you he is an atheist for intellectual reasons, don't believe him. Atheism is low brow and low-class and no matter how much rouge you put on the pig face of atheism, it is still a pig.  The same can be said of the pseudoscience of Darwinism which has caused untold suffering in the world.  Christianity, on the other hand, has wonderful holidays and its true adherents are filled with joy and have done countless good works.  See:  Why is evolution pushed by dogmatic evolutionists? and  Biblical creationist are joyful and atheism/Darwinism inspire human misery

Mr. Atheists, are you a good person?   I challenge you to take this test: Good person test
