It's all about overlapping conflict. As long as religious people let scientists investigate and educate, then there can be coexistence. When the "born agains" want to argue with science or impede it in any way, then they deservedly bring on "the battle". You can believe in ghosts all you want, and we can coexist and even debate it, but don't interject it in the classroom and push it on the public. Just live your delusional life without impacting others. When you start pushing irrational beliefs, you should expect (and deserve) a battle. RD, Hitch, PZ, and a host of other rationals were inevitable champions that were bound to emerge. It started out as defensive, and has rightfully shifted to an offense. Charge on!
