We don't bash god. We try to keep people that believe in god from making rules based on their own superstitions and then making other people have to live by them. God is just fine. It is the followers of assorted religions that think they speak for god. Every religion believes that they are the one true chosen religion and this is just not the case.
If religious people would stop trying to legislate based on beliefs that are not universally held, there wouldn't be a problem. You are free to believe what you want. But when it interferes with the progress of science and law, it has no place. That is what atheists, agnostics, humanists and flying spaghetti monster devotees want most, the freedom to explore the world around us and live as we choose without artificial restraints that have no basis in logic.
