If his claim that "people who want to drive religion underground are much more active, much more vocal" contained a jot of truth...

To be fair to Trev (who I do not hold in very high regard), if he means that atheists are more vocal than they used to be, there IS a jot of truth in it. And a good thing too in the face of resurgent religious fundementalism. The problem is that the ECHR's remit - originally intended to protect people from being discriminated against on the grounds of their race, sex etc - has been warped to include protecting people who want to believe in magic elves from having their beliefs challenged.
