Well the problem is that:
"OSS is about a better software development methodology not a religion"
Is just as political stance as anything else, but people refuse to acknowledge it as such, so that automaticly clouds their judgement.
"I am not religous like you" and "I am not political like you" is not realy a effective way to deal with people in a debate. It's only a couple levels above personal insult and is ultimately quite pointless and irrelevent to anything people are talking about.
Unfortunately it's difficult for people who see GPLv3 as RMS's baby to look at it objectively when they feel that RMS has gone out of his way to fuck with them not only on a project-wide, but also on a personal basis in order to push his agenda. (I think that their is pretty decent justification for them to feel that way.)
