Atheist vs Anti-theist

Atheist vs Anti-theist
Do you consider yourself an atheist (don't believe in God) or one step further an anti-theist (opposed to religion/God)?

Basically, are you passive, don't care about religion as long as it doesn't hurt me. Or an anti-theist that thinks religion is harmful to society? Why?

Also, if you are an anti-theist are you automatically an atheist? I know there are atheists that are not anti-theists.

I am an atheist and an anti-theist. I think religion does more harm than good despite the good deeds that some Christians do.

Anti-theist. It's nice that some people give to charities, but it doesn't relaly make up for the killings and indoctrination going on in the name of religion. There are nice christians that just want to be good, and help humanity, but there are others who wield it like a sword, and threaten other people with it.

I wish you had "other" in your poll. I'm opposed to some religious views, theocracy, and the gods some theists describe.
If there is a god, I want to believe that there is a god.  If there is not a god, I want to believe that there is no god.

Me too. I am an antifundamentalist but I don't think I could be called an anti theist.

Anti-dogmatist. I believe dogma is destructive to happiness and well-being. However if someone gets some comfort from woo nonsense I won't begrudge them it.

Atheist. I used to camp out in the anti-theist section but I've cooled my burners a bit. I'm opposed to the aspects of religion that hurt people but no more so than anything else that hurts people in society.

RE: Atheist vs Anti-theist
I am an anti-theist. Religion has impeded science and progress. Religion promotes irrationality. Religion is in back of the hatred against gays and all sorts of other such things. Religion is evil.

I'm anti-hater (that catches most fundamentalists). Life is precious and short.
