A person who holds the view that organized religion when considered throughout the centuries has been a destructive force in society, wrongly believed is that all are also agnostics or atheists, but a great number of faithful theists also see organized religion as harmful to society and choose to follow their own path to god.
when considering the crusades, September the 11th, the holocaust and the Spanish inquisition the anti-theist concluded that religion had caused great harm to society.

Actively opposes a belief in gods of any sort and to institutions built around belief in a deity. They believe that religion is harmful to individuals and society and that it impedes scientific progress and encourages immoral acts.
An anti-theist may see religious harm in the brainwashing of children, faith healing, circumcision, holy wars, terrorism, the inquisition, blood sacrifice, and discrimination against homosexuals and women.

One who not only rejects the existence of God(s) but in addition opposes organised religions, especially monotheisms of Abrahamic tradition, believing them to be inherently deleterious to the human condition. With particular regard to human rights, scientific progress, education, democracy, public health and individualism.
The reasons for my anti-theist belief are numerous, but the most important of these is the incompatibility of verifiable empirical fact and untestable articles of blind faith, rendering wilful misinformation, as being the most serious offence of theism.
