Hmm.. The topic 'Does Atheism Poison Everything' is changed to 'Is a purely secular society preferable to a religious one?, without an explanation.
Then Larry Taunton almost goes back to the original topic with 'Atheism Poisons Everything' but leaves out the question mark. I wonder if he was looking at the exclamation mark before posting the report.

Actually, it was also promoted as

'How Atheism Poisons Everything - A Debate. What are the implications of a purely secular society?'

Some consistency, please.
