Evangelical Atheism and Anti-Theism are a toxic ideologies. It teaches people to hate the religious, think they are stupid, think they are crazy, and think they are violent. This is a twisted inaccurate view of reality, which can spoil minds and cause prejudicial hate towards the religious.
In reality, religion teaches to love your neighbor, to not harm others (even extending that to words and to animals in some faiths), and to be meek and (try to be) humble. Faith teaches you to not judge others, because we don't know how God will judge, and He is the one who will do so ultimately.
So the effect of Evangelical Atheism and Anti-Theism is that it breeds hate and a false sense of reality in the minds of those who follow it and try to spread it. And things that happened centuries ago are irrelevant.
