Which Is More Rage-Inducing?

I just came upon this quote made by an atheist:

When I look at the relentlessly deteriorating family situation so obvious in the world around us today my conclusion regarding the source of this disaster is that American family life is being destroyed because of our willful disobedience against the natural order of relations between men and women. To put it simply; men are to provide for and protect women and women have obligations to obey men. Each individual man in turn has an obligation to obey the social rules that men as a collective decide upon for the community.

So here’s my question. Is it more rage-inducing when religious individuals endorse patriarchy or when secular individuals endorse patriarchy? Personally, I’m going to say the latter, though I’m not entirely sure why. What say you?
