What Richard did, didn't end well

One of the most frequent accusations levelled against atheists is their apparent elevation of Richard Dawkins to the role of some sort of strange, counter-intuitive God head.
In fact, there are times you'd be forgiven for thinking that the Pope of Unbelief has some sort of infallibility clause written into his contract - if you listened to his many critics, that is.
That's either a deliberate misunderstanding of the whole point of atheism, or simply an example of how some people seem to assume that every belief system, even the ones based on non-belief, need a figurehead.
