What people really don't like about the New Atheists
I think they're actually doing remarkably well. The number of people who identify themselves as religious has dropped significantly, and a lot of people who would say "Christian" when they never actually went to church (outside of funerals and weddings) have stopped doing so.

Providing a public identity and face for "Not believing any religion is true" and giving a rallying point for people who are fed up with being told that they live in a "Christian country" is going staggeringly well for them.

Religious people believe because emotional resonance overrides logic
Which doesn't surprise me. Most people at least start off believing things because they lead to a conclusion that they like. Starting at axioms and working your way forward to whatever they lead to is distinctly uncomfortable at times
