Well, I think most would realize that an atheist claiming spiritual values is about as laughable as Ahmadinejad claiming that Iran doesn’t punish homosexuals b/c, “In Iran, we don't have homosexuals.” I think that most would quickly see through Tom's transparent nonsense, and I doubt that he'd get many votes.
I think you already used that line. Can you come up with something more convincing?

You've already admitted that atheists are not necessarily nihilists, that some are actually nice people. How can that be? They can't possibly have any morals. So you have a major hole in your world-view that needs repairing. What are your thoughts on that?
