    All you're saying is that you object to people expressing opinions of anti-religiosity. I don't see why though, the opinion is as relevant and open to debate as any other.

    My own anti-religiosity only extends so far as pushing towards secularism in the public sphere.

    I suppose I interject occasionally in religion debates when people make false claims about evolution, which usually make me cringe as a biologist, or some other grossly inaccurate statement.

    And the occasional jab when I'm feeling *****y.

    I'm not sure any of that qualifies as promoting atheism though.

    So, calling people obsessed isn't a personal attack, but Varenne asking why you're debating it is.

    It's a bit like my old avatar: (you have to watch for a few seconds)

    Go to work, get married, have some kids, pay your taxes, pay your bills, watch your tv, follow fashion, act normal, obey the law and repeat after me: "I am free."
