Since I started becoming more observant and wearing a kippah, I’ve run into far more angry and vocal atheists than antisemites Comments like “oh, so you believe in magic” or “people like you are responsible for most of the misery in the world” or “how can an intelligent person believe in G-d”. I don’t try to impose myself on others in the slightest, and I honestly answer any sincere questions they may have. There is just something about some 70 year old Jew quietly going about his day wearing a kippah that stirs some people to defend atheism by passively-aggressively questioning my belief rather than defending their own.
I get a lot more militant atheism than antisemitism.
