Many feel a need, myself included, to promote rational thought and evidence-based reasoning for the simple reason that we live in a country dominated by people who believe that their morals are derived from Bronze Age myths. And these people have a majority vote for the laws that I will have to adhere to. It's quite an incentive for speaking out.

Belief in an afterlife was one of the last superstitions I shed, and it was a bit of a shock to the system to finally let it go. Ultimately though, it makes this life so much more important. Knowing that this is our one chance really helps me to make the most of the time I have and not waste it.

I think a lawsuit is going a bit too far, for right now. It's generally best to pick your battles, and I think there are bigger fish to fry at the moment. No reason to give the other side fodder for considering atheists to be angry and petty, especially when there is an argument to be made for retaining freedom of speech (albeit in a grey area). I think the payoff is likely to be very small (or nonexistent) and not worth the effort.
