Heirio "Promoting a religion via preaching is basically like "My religion is great, you should follow it!". Insults to certain demographics may or may not be mixed in, but what I just referred to is the focal point here. Atheism is not a religion but rather a lack thereof. Thus, to promote atheism, one has to bash religion. Promotion of religion doesn't necessarily need the bashing of people, but the promotion of atheism requires the bashing of religion. Both should be allowed, since they're both freedoms of speech. But the preaching of atheism is more of a dick move." Seeing as the two largest religions in the world, Christianity and Islam, both claim they are the one true religion and that anyone following another religion or a lack there of you could as easily argue that promoting either religion is insulting to all other belief systems as by claiming that religion is true as you claim their people will burn in hell for disagreeing with you. I'm sure you'll agree that it is ridiculous to consider claiming your religion is true is offensive but that is effectively the precedent you have set up. Further more I would not consider telling someone you disagree with them as being offensive.
