Let me revise and extend my remarks.

I don't mind discussion of religion so much as I object to it becoming a
"here's a stupid thing that happened and let's all cap on
christianity|islam|judaism|zoroastrianism|the hare krishnas|jedis" - which
seldom results in useful discussion. ;-\

but never mind me. it's *so* free speech in here. ;-)
