If he/she thought science was provably superior to religion, and if he/she thought he/she was smarter than religious people.

It might be emotionally satisfying for the punisher.

That’s pretty creepy, dude.

Only if they use their religion as an excuse to harm people. Like the ones who do their hardest to make LGBTQ people's lives miserable (and knowing that Ahri's gay, I would think that this is) or the ones that use their power to cover for abusers (The RCC is notorious for this, but if Lloyd Evans is any indication, the Jehovah's Witnesses are even worse and if their population were comparable, there'd be no question whatsoever about it.)

OP is a troll, end of story. I can picture him rocking back and forth in the chair in his grandma's basement, laughing hysterically.
If you get to thinking you’re a person of some influence, try ordering somebody else’s dog around.

Back when I was a young theist, I would troll atheist message boards. But then I grew up.

There are atheists on the Internet who say that raising a child with religion is child abuse. 

Child abuse is illegal. 

So if they're serious in what they say, and not just talking shit for effect, then they advocate the involvement of the government (like Child Family Services) to intervene with, if not punish, religious parents.

   Short answer?

"No."

   Long answer?

"No."

   Explanatory answer?

"I do not give two petunias about what people believe. It's when they show care and such about what I am allowed to believe there's an issue."

  You're welcome.

Atheists on the internet? We're setting the bar pretty low aren't we? Wouldn't you be annoyed with an argument premised on "theists on the internet say x"?

And you'd be justified in thinking that. Because it's strawmanning.

Now, you're an old atheist trolling atheist message boards.
