21. Your perception is inaccurate.
The policy, once again: "Members are welcome to discuss whether they agree or disagree with particular religious beliefs, but they are expected to do so in a relatively sensitive and respectful manner. As a general rule, discussions about ideas are usually permitted, but broad-brush bigoted statements about groups of people either religious or non-religious are not."

The policy is enforced for other religions as well, and I'm surprised you haven't seen that yet, given how long you've been a member. Here's an example from today, in fact:

When you see religious bigotry (or bigotry against atheists), please confront it, alert on it, or do both. I'm sorry if you are feeling it's tolerated here in general, but the mods can't be everywhere at once. We sort of need to be self-policing in ensuring we aren't sending messages, or tolerating messages, that certain people aren't welcome in our communities, shouldn't be running for public office, etc. based on their religion.
