I said I got it.

Because this religious leader is an abuser, all religious leaders are abusers.

To be fair, a lot of religious people also do this. Because forum poster The Atheist is virulently anti-religion, all atheists are virulently anti-religion. That's a mistake too.

I'm sure I don't have to name this logical fallacy.

No, you didn't get it, and your hyperbole is somewhat out of character. Chill a little and read what people actually write. I wrote many and I meant many, not all. Many more are just innocently delusional.

I know what you said. I also know what The Atheist said. They are not the same thing.
