I think the reality is that religious folks here tend to take far more offense at any kind of criticism or mockery of religion (within the atheism thread, that is) than is true of the converse. It must be okay, I think, for religion to be dissected, attacked and even mocked to some extent, within this thread. No one should attack any member, but it needs to be okay for religion to be, in a word, slammed. Not for the sake of it, but as part of an overall critique or explanation. Religious folks take a lot of offense oftentimes to any suggestion that there's a problem within religion (or theirs, specifically), and that's the source of much strife here.
