The CoV is not explicitly anti-Christianity or anti-theism. We are anti-
"blind faith", anti-hypocrisy and anti-apathy. If Christianity happens to
advocate blind faith, then we are opposed to that particular aspect of it.

But I don't want to define our beliefs in negative terms (an idea I was
infected by recently from "The Fifth Discipline" by Peter Senge, more on that
in a future post). Better to say we are pro-rationality, pro-empathy, pro-
consciousness, pro-creativity.
