1. From my point of view, there is nothing inflammatory about that quote
the poster is simply stating his opinion on his views of the bible or Christianity, or Judaism as he has determined.

Why expect he NOT say anything like that? As for believers, that is the proper term to use to describe persons who believe in gods. Some of those believers are not necessarily "worshippers" if you know what I mean.

There is nothing that requires that those who cannot believe in gods, are required to respect those gods currently in favor, and say so or censor their own beliefs out of some "respect" demanded by those who do believe in gods. To expect that is somewhat ethnocentric. To do so, would certainly be inconsistent and even immoral for those people who cannot believe in gods.
