"We've all been brought up with the view that religion has some kind of special privileged status. You're not allowed to criticise it. And therefore, if you offer even a fairly mild criticism, it really does sound strident, because it violates this expectation that religion is out of bounds."

This is an observable fact.
It's the same with other topics people are brainwashed to consider untouchable, such as patriotism.
