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).

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?

I don't think it's valid or appropriate because that is my opinion and those religious beliefs would be their opinion. It would be a fruitless discussion, so I don't normally do it(I might use the attribution etc. to reply to such an attack on my beliefs). Though, when I believe that actions and opinions border on a religious belief, I will state so. Many Darwinists(I know Amanda is triggered by the word but Dr. James Shapiro uses it.) act in such a fashion.
