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"
