Yes Judeo-Christianity is the largest religion in the West. But today's current atheist orthodox attack it because it IS an easy target. So I'll sit back and watch you people run into the proverbial brick wall when you attack muslim's that what they believe in, is a myth. Oh this will be good. You guys have no idea what you're up against.?
current attacks, at least in Russia is nothing more than answer to aggressive RPTs politics. our state is secular by Constitution, and lots of us don't like Religion invading our life. take education for example, who the fuck need "Basics of Orthodox Culture" as obligatory classes in elementary school? i believe religion and faith is a personal choice, and don't like when someone tried to decide what i SHOULD believe in.
My experience in converts. Does not matter what they converted from or to. What they were was horrible, what they converted to, is the only place to be. (Until they convert to something else.)
I see that alot in Buddhism. A bit steryotypical to say, but alot of US Jewish born women seem to do this. They go through a few different religions or spiritual movements and finally end up in Buddhism.

FFS NO, the "atheist orthodox", whatever that means, attack on religion is largely a US phenomena or directed towards the US because of the relatively recent rise in overt fundamentalist Christian beliefs in the US and their influence on education, politics and foreign policy, hence the reaction.
In Europe you'll be hard pressed to find any significant Atheist organizations that go out of their way to respond to religion like you find in the US. You know why? Because we have a clear separation of church and state and douchebag fundamentalist politicians don't try to influence education, science and society in general with their made up personal beliefs. We have many Christians, although many of them are really agnostic or atheist if you really ask and call themselves Christians out of tradition.
But even the average devout Christian here would no get along with some of the US kind, believe me.
And also believe me, the biggest religious group in Europe to get criticised by average people, are the Muslims and their backwards culture that is out of touch with reality and current times. The only time you hear a reaction on Christianity is when the Catholic church does something stupid, like saying that using condoms is wrong or tries to protect paedophile priests.
