Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
but I tend to respond harshly after being stereotyped as a "Bible-thumping, pious militarist" and a "grotesque, abject sucker".

But this is their style.  They go after absolutely everyone, usually with this express intention of getting exactly that kind of response.  It might be hyperbole or "shock" value, but there is usually a major dose of truth in it, and the way it works is it is all funny hahaha to smuggly laugh at the stupidity and incompetence of other until they shine the spotlight on you.  It ends up pissing a lot of people off.  Especially those guilty as charged.  I think their motto must be "If you take yourself too seriously, you must be hiding something."
