    I have my non-belief, and I don't push it.  You don't either.

    I'm contrasting with those who feel it necessary to insult people of faith, who go out of their way to provoke.  As you say, you do not try to convert anyone to your way of thinking, nor do you degrade anyone for their beliefs.  Ergo, you are not a Westboro Atheist.  I don't think Christians (or Muslims or Jews or any believer) should be defined by the most extreme "believers" of their faith, nor should atheists or agnostics be defined by the loudest, most provocative voices on our side.

    I think we're saying the same thing, but perhaps I didn't clarify it well.
