my wife is an atheist and she thinks these people are losers.
The concept of “victim” does not exist in atheism. There is only winner and loser.
The word “victim” implies morals. Atheism, by definition, makes you your own source of moral values. So the only person on the planet that can be a victim is you. And then only because you say so. If you rob a bank and get caught, you are a victim of the police.
