Antireligion motsätter sig religion av något slag. [1] [2] [3] Begreppet har använts för att beskriva motstånd mot organiserad religion, religiösa metoder eller religiösa institutioner . Denna term har också använts för att beskriva motstånd mot specifika former av övernaturlig tillbedjan eller övning, oavsett om det är organiserat eller ej . Motstånd mot religionen går också bortom det misotheistiska spektret. Som sådan skiljer sig antireligion från gudomspecifika positioner som ateism (bristen på tro på gudar) och antiteism (ett motstånd mot tro på gudar); även om "antireligionister" också kan vara ateister eller antiteister.

  7. ^ Many of us saw religion as harmless nonsense. Beliefs might lack all supporting evidence but, we thought, if people needed a crutch for consolation, where's the harm? September 11th changed all that. Revealed faith is not harmless nonsense, it can be lethally dangerous nonsense. Dangerous because it gives people unshakeable confidence in their own righteousness. Dangerous because it gives them false courage to kill themselves, which automatically removes normal barriers to killing others. Dangerous because it teaches enmity to others labelled only by a difference of inherited tradition. And dangerous because we have all bought into a weird respect, which uniquely protects religion from normal criticism. Let's now stop being so damned respectful! The Guardian, 2001-10-11
