If me saying "I do not believe in God" has a negative effect on Mark,
your answer seems to be "do not tell Mark the truth". If Mark was a
co-worker and I had no option but to interact with him, I would probably
do something along those lines if possible. But if Mark was a member of
an open source project, I do have an option and I'd rather tell it like
it is. If Mark has a problem with that, I can always avoid Mark, or just
leave the project (say if Mark was the maintainer).

In both cases Mark is wrong. I do understand that most people would
rather comprimise their beliefs in order to win penguing points. I'm
not that way.

If I can't speak my mind in an open source project where I'm
contributing my time *for free*, I do not want to be part of that
project. It's the project that's wrong, not me, and it's the project
that looses, not me.
