This argumentation suffers from the usual confusion over the term ‘secularism’. The secular is not opposed to religion. To suggest otherwise is a part of what drives religionists to the right, and to an antimodern stance.

In general the stance of the new atheists is so impoverished (and not because they are atheists) that people find their exit from Xtianity blocked by an unreasonable set of fanatics, all over again.
