Will the sneering at the religious now stop?

It seems that a debate along the lines of this article are brewing in Australia as well as America. Well, not in terms of Dr Nicholas Tonti-Filippini's argument about an open debate, or what he calls, 'an inclusive, thoughtful and respectful debate on this issue, a debate that reasons rather than labels', but certainly one where 'religion' and 'seculariism' are pited against one another in crude and simplistic terms - the clash of 'fundamentalisms' perhaps? I get tired of this same old rot.

I imagine that things will get ugly and our governments will be playing plenty of wedge politics.
