I agree with your point, it's true, you don't need to be an atheist to shame people.
The thing is, this post is emphasizing on those harmful people within each group, and the stereotype of their "arguments" against others. For example: You don't have to be a Christian to be homophobic, racists, etc... but the stereotype of "bad Christians" are people that do this.
So as a comparison: Many of the ignorant and vocal "atheists" have the tendency to call religious people stupid since sometimes their beliefs don't seem empirical. For some reason these people believe that religion is a contradiction to science and that being religious is the same to not being a logical being, and usually their arguments are based on "I am logical, you are not" (obvious ad hominem on a straw man).
Also I think your definition of shaming is kind of off.
Not shaming: "I think religion is silly, so I don't believe in it"
Shaming: "I think religion is silly, so you are stupid for believing in it"

I'm not saying he's on their level, don't get me wrong, merely saying that using hatred to try to convince others to consider a different path will get you nowhere.
I just don't understand why people feel the need to so aggressively convince people that they're right. I don't think he does it out of a desire to spread truth and knowledge, he does it out of a desire to win. Letting people believe what they believe, so long as it harms nobody is okay, when you try to stop people from believing differently, it just makes you a bigot.

I think you ought to take a deep breath and watch a youtube clip or two with him, I really don't understand why you think he spreads it through hatred.
I think his state of mind is more set on bettering humanity.
Try and spot where he's actually hateful, I think you'll be watching for quite a while.
I'm no fan of the 16 year old internet atheist who spams, lol religion retarded. But I don't think Richard champions em, just because they champion him.
