What Does Ken Ham Think Of The Just Launched Atheist TV Channel?

A few days ago, the first ever television channel catering to atheists launched and many Christians aren't too happy about it. Among them is the young earth creationist (YEC) Ken Ham. Ham who heads the Christian apologetics ministry Answers in Genesis (AiG) voiced out his displeasure through a blog post at the official website of AiG.

Ham wrote that atheists are doing nothing but rpeaching their religion of godlessness and that they are imposing their message of purposelessness to other people.

I guess he is right in saying that it's a form of preaching but to call atheism a religion is just wrong. Atheism is the rejection of religion. Ham also gets the purpose wrong. He is twisting things by proclaiming that atheists go around telling people that they have no purpose. If you are familiar with Ham's previous writings, his twisted interpretation of the launch of the atheist channel should not surprise you. It's his schtick. Atheists have no purpose in life and they want to impose this purposelessness to other people. Blah, blah, blah.

Ham says that he finds it incredible that non-believers are spending a lot of their time arguing about God, something that they don't believe in. He also questions why atheists are not doing the same about the mythical Easter Bunny.
To state the obvious, Easter Bunny believers don't run for office and try to impose their beliefs on their constituents. They don't go around telling people that they will burn in hell if they don't believe in the Easter Bunny. There's the difference between Easter Bunny believers and Ken Ham.
