New Atheism in decline?

The Guardian reports:
The high tide of "new atheism" may have passed, the archbishop of Canterbury has said in his Easter sermon. Rowan Williams said the atheism v religion debate appeared to be moving on from what he called "a pointless stalemate".
Unfortunately for the Archbishop the high tide of New Atheism is nowhere in sight, let alone having passed. While the church he leads still advocates insane positions on women's rights, marriage and adoption Atheism will continue to grow. While Christianity continues to insist on a privileged position within society for which there is no basis, Atheism will continue to grow and the criticisms will grow stronger.
