I think what we are seeing here is that atheists don't often speak up in public, and when they do, they are often silenced - as in the recent controversy over atheist advertising on buses. So people who are insulated by a powerful religious background have both misunderstandings and misconceptions about other belief systems.
I think open discussion of these matters is probably better for society as a whole.
But not if it's aimed at making anyone changed their mind.
