[[category:troll phrases]][[Atheist supremacy]] is an [[anti-atheism]] [[troll phrase]]. It [[claim-smuggling|smuggles in the claim]] that [[atheist]]s (or at least [[active atheism|those who openly declare themselves as such]]) believe they are generally superior to non-atheists (i.e. [[religious]] people, agnostics, and [[passive atheist]]s with religious sympathies) and therefore entitled to rule or control them -- a tactic designed to [[demonize]] atheists and [[fearmongery|inspire fear]] of them.
There do not appear to be any substantial arguments behind this phrase; it is clearly [[guilt by association]] (atheists are supremacists) and [[claim-smuggling]] (the connection is never stated outright, much less justified).
Although I was not able to find any actual ''arguments'' explaining this phrase (which is of course one of the things that makes it so specially trollish), the lyrics of a Gilbert and Sullivan parody entitled "[http://www.amiright.com/parody/2000s/gilbertsullivan0.shtml I Am The Very Model Of An Atheist Supremacist]" convey the general idea. --[[User:Woozle|Woozle]] 16:07, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
