I haven't read all the posts but I don't think a majority, or even a significant minority here are "anti-religious." There's a difference between tolerance of others views (whilst agreeing to disagree) and being anti-religious.

I think trying to force your views on others (both sides) and harming others in the name of your God (or lack thereof)is where the line is crossed.

Views like Steve's that "if it works for you, then fine" are a good example of where I stand on it. That's not said in a derogatory way either........I don't get it and view it as a bit of a security blanket (and I was brought up in a Christian family) but I'm not going to say "you're wrong". I have too much respect for the intellect of some people who are devoutly religious.

The dreaded "R word" always stirs things up LOL
