I share your suspicion of "compassion." What I have decided is, if I don't feel it, I should not fake it. But I should absolutely strive not to lose my temper. And I will try to view those religious zealots as brainwashed mammals, so my expectations for them should not be so high.
Some humans really do have limited capacity to understand and analyze. I will try to have compassion for those type of brains the same way I have compassion for dogs and cats!

Re: medical providers. A few years ago my hubby had to go for some tests at a cardiologist. The Doctor had Christian music playing in his office. It was very disturbing.
At another place for colonoscopies, there was a cross hanging over the door to go to the surgical suites. Both in the same city here.

We should all be able to support the Secular Coalition. Keeping religion out of government should be a universal non-believer's value.
We should be able to submit to someone else's authority to work towards these type of goals, even if we think we have better ideas or methods.

Interesting. I just declined to renew my membership subscription to Free Inquiry.
All my money is going to FFRF, Americans United for Separation of Church and State, and a newcomer: MRFF, Military Religious Freedom Foundation.
And I donate to Foundation Beyond Belief.

I also would not vote for someone soley because he or she is an atheist.
I'm looking for pro-science and pro-separation of church and state.
