Ah! I see what bothers you. It's the lack of respect for free speech, it pisses me off too.
On one side we have these somewhat free states driven by a set of religious values. On the other side we have totalitarian atheists regimes driven by a set of sociological principles. And in the middle we find ourselves without acces to basic rights like free speech.
I frequently ask myself how could we solve that without hurting others rights.
The problem is, you also have states that are both totalitarian and religious.
So if you already have a totalitarian state (see Shah Iran) bringing in religion will make it worse, not better (the current mullah Iran).
Sadly, I don't see any good perspectives. In rich countries, the main voting power belongs to people of considerable age. And they don't use much freedoms therefore freedom is not a selling point for politicians; medical care and pensions are.
And in poorer countries you can always band together enough Red Guards to establish a totalitarian theocraty if you don't have one already.
Hell no! Fight them back with better ideas, respect, and equality. But first of all, you have to understand what you're up against, study what they say, find cracks in their logic, and show that you're both on the same side. It's all a matter of perspective.
