Let's see . . . I don't want to start a debate so I'm going for focus on sharing my feelings . . . I'm an atheist. I have friends who are atheists. None of us are amoral. There are other foundations for morality besides divine command (I'll expound further on this if you are interested, but not here). My point here is that the implication that a lack of belief in a god leads to inferior morality is unfair and offensive.

I have followed some of his debates and books.

Basically he seems to think that his ideas (and his person) are extremely important, to the point of demeaning anyone who would oppose him.
