Atheist a dirty word?

A couple weeks back, I heard it said that "atheist" is considered a dirty word in our society. Shrugged the suggestion off.

Yesterday, a guy in my philosophy class boldly declared that God did not exist. A few minutes later, he was denying being an atheist, claiming deism instead.

Stigma from the word, or just need of an English lesson?
