Among many other ad hominem style arguments, apologists often assert that atheists are actually angry at God. A variation is atheists hate God.

While a very small number of atheists claim to have deconverted based on being angry at God, a person who remains angry at God is not an atheist. To be angry at something, you must believe in it. This indicates a basic misunderstanding about the meaning of the word "atheist." On the other hand, it may simply be a veiled attempt to invoke the notion that there are no atheists.

"Many claim to believe that God does not exist and yet, according to empirical studies, they tend to be the people most angry at him.[1]"
