"Do atheists hate the Saints?"

Offensive to atheists? Or just offensive to fans of a solid defense?

Once again, people are debating whether the name of the Washington Redskins should be changed out of deference to Native Americans. The Kansas City Star does not use it, and the CBS TV station in Washington D.C. reports "The Washington City Paper, DCist, and even select Washington Post writers have joined the Star in its uphill struggle against tradition."

Which leads us to the letters page of the Post this morning, where a reader complains "The political-correctness police have started their ritual" and goes on to wonder:

Are there no more important issues these days? There are many NFL team names that may offend thin-skinned and hypersensitive people: Do atheists hate the Saints?

Weigh in here, atheists. Chime in, New Orleans Secular Humanist Association. Do you hate the Saints? (And we're not talking about last season's defense, but the team as a whole.)
