Is there any reason for this insult? If someone wrote "atheist" in place of "religious," you'd most likely be all over them for their bigotry.

I'm not an atheist. I'm firmly agnostic and have no opinion on what religion is correct or if any is.

My comment is based on bitterness that the Tea Party has largely wasted their efforts the last two years by making sure religious nuts get onto the ballot; Angle in Nevada is the most glaring example. Reid had no chance of re-election if the Republicans just nominated someone who never mentioned religion or allowed it to affect their policy agenda.

The Tea Party is a purely fiscal movement as far as I'm concerned or should have been. Infecting it with those who viewed social issues as equally important or even on the radar by comparison blunted the goal of getting rid of big government socialists.
