That seems to ask if I would judge someone's opinion. The only judgement I will make is that it is not my opinion as to motive(mainly because I am not a mind reader), but as in the case of NCSE there is ample evidence of pursuit of an agenda(they trumpet it). An agenda so entrenced that NCSE delves into the business of the Smithsonian.

Is it any less obvious that that the web site organization running it that this article came from has an agenda?

Do you think it's valid or appropriate to attribute religious beliefs to people without knowing whether they actually hold those beliefs or not, or assume a bias or agenda in scientific matters based on their religious beliefs?

Well, yes since NCSE clearly states a portion of their agenda, but as their foray into the realm of The Smithsonian demonstrates, some of the agenda is hidden since in that situation their actions were not in the open. That being said, it seems obvious that anyone or anything having a presentation also has an agenda for that presentation.
