This comment in the Digg thread expressed my opinion:
I don't think Digg is anti-religion its just pro-logic. Diggers don't hate on religion, we just hate when people use religion to interfere in the liberty of others. Example: gay marriage; a religious person see a religious issue, a Digger sees a question of freedom for a social minority. Keep your religion to yourself and Diggers will keep religious barbs at bay, unless there is a good LUL to be had.
It's not a matter of being anti-religious as a-religious. In a similar fashion the media is not anti-Conservative, but pro-"liberal": As in "broad-minded", as in wanting to see issues from multiple perspectives, as in a neutral point of view.
Another perspective is most religions are anti-religious to other religions. EG: Christians don't believe in Zeus or Thor, i.e. to a Christian, his or her beliefs are super natural yet real, while other beliefs are superstitions. Atheists, agnostics and the like generally don't believe in the super natural.
What is funny or interesting is blind to religion, race, gender, sexual orientation, or culture. The issue of taste is another story.
