Well I'm not sure how much can be done about that. If the aforementioned serial killers decided to proclaim their actions as a symbol of right-handedness, I'm not sure that there would be a right-handed coalition ready to step forward to denounce the actions of the serial killers.

I guess this is just one more example of how blatant misconceptions of atheism continue to occasionally make life difficult for atheists. Of course, my hope would be that any rational person would quickly (and of their own volition) determine that these serial killers couldn't possibly represent all right-handed people, however as reality shows us every day, irrationality is rewarded is very powerful circles.
