Antireligion: http://en.wikipedia.org...
Antitheism: http://en.wikipedia.org...

The antireligion page seems to suggest there is a difference, but I can't work out what it is. o.O;

Not completely sure, but my understanding is Antitheism is against the belief of any deity, and Antireligion is against religion. The two aren't the same. Religion does not need a deity(eg.Buddhism) and not all deities are part of religion.

I swear I posted this in Religion. I rarely even look in the Politics thread.

I think you nailed it. I've been drinking tequila and my typing is still amazing, even though I can barely sit up. Ho-ho, ha-ha.

Anti-Theism is both an opposition to the existence of God (i.e. does not want God to exist) and opposition to the belief in God (hence, Anti-Theism, against God-belief).

Anti-Religion, well, that's pretty self-explanatory.

They're just a bunch of annoying extremists. I despise the extremists on both sides.
