Someone sent us a request to remove his own religion from the list, as a matter of "respect". Here's how RMS replied:

I wrote this version of the list (adding to earlier versions that
circulated on the net).  I am not going to make the change you

My own view on the issue of religion, Atheism, is made fun of in this
list.  The religion of my ancestors is also included.  Even the
Church of Emacs is included. You may think your religion
deserves more respect than others, but I don't.  No one is entitled to
that kind of "respect".

So this item will remain in the list.
