"People unaffiliated with organized religion, atheists and agnostics also report anger toward God either in the past, or anger focused on a hypothetical image - that is, what they imagined God might be like[.]"
Might as well say: Some people get angry at fictional characters that do bad things! News at 11!
Ah-duh. I dislike any fictional character that I read about/see doing evil, hypocritical, self-centered things that harm generally innocent people or groups. I think most people are that way.
The worst thing here is that some people want to portray this as atheists somehow believing in God and hating Him. That's some self-contradicting BS right there. The actual article says it includes hypothetical gods, and once you`ve really read the Bible, you know that some well known hypothetical gods can be pretty huge a-holes. (Joshua 10:40 or Psalm 137:8-9, anyone?)

Atheist here, and I'm not angry at God at all. Hard to be angry at a made up play thing in the sky. I`m no more angry at this "God" character than I am say "Santa Clause", "Easter Bunny", "Zues", "Ra the Sun God" or "Ash the Pokemon Trainer" because they are tales of fiction, and are of no concern to a reasonable mind that is capable of observing the world around them. Simple as that.
