Because this is the atheist tack: for example:

Catholics fight against gay marriage.
Atheists say we are obsessed with homosexuals.

Catholics denounce sexual sin.
Atheists say Catholics are obsessed with sex in an unhealthy way.

Catholics mention X
Atheists say Catholics are obsessed with X.

So, when Br.Guy was interviewed on his opinion about aliens and any research he has done, you assume that Br.Guy is utterly obsessed with aliens and should be doing xyz and then question even further why an observatory even exists - throwing the baby out with the bathwater.

All I am saying is calm down bro. Take the interview for what it is. Take it in its context. Br.Guy is a genius - he has lectured at all the big sciencey places in America if I remember correctly, and is a world authority on astronomy. Give the man a break - he is not in a quixotic search for the Holy Grail.
