Go for it. I'm against censorship based on ones personal beliefs. Don't confuse what I consider it acceptable to believe with my actual opinions.
The message I replied to was clearly an il-informed anti-religious screed. I gather you are in favor of this view. You're entitled to your opinions, but not to insist everyone in the project must share them.
For myself, I'd like to encourage you to take a step back and work on being more comfortable with people whose opinions are not exactly like yours.
If you don't like religious software, ignore it.
