I am justifiably misanthropic.  I despise all human beings equally

Including yourself?

Absolutely.  One sin I don't have, I am not a hypocrite.  Egomaniacs do not include themselves of course, in their despising of ordinary mortals.  I am quite ordinary and flawed.  And I can extrapolate from that, as well as make direct observation of the other zoo animals.

Well, no wonder you have such a negative view of humanity, if you have such loathing for yourself. If you can't love yourself you can't love anyone else, either.

I have plenty of self-love … but that isn't necessarily a virtue.  Care to admit you are the Apostle John, the saint of love?

Alpha male then?  What country will you invade next?

I'm up for invading the Vatican.  They fit our profile:  Rich, no military to speak of, and they aren't very popular.
The Christian church, in its attitude toward science, shows the mind of a more or less enlightened man of the Thirteenth Century. It no longer believes that the earth is flat, but it is still convinced that prayer can cure after medicine fails.

H.G. Wells thought the Vatican should have been bombed back in WWII. He talked about it in his book Crux Ansata: An Indictment of the Roman Catholic Church. It was, in fact, the title of the first chapter.

See Constantine's Sword … unfortunately the Vatican has 1700 years of guilt.  Pope Pius during WW II was awful.

And many religious fanatics spread across the globe they can imploy to retaliate through terrorist attacks.

Ah, but would you rather the Soviet Union still exist?  Afghans died for you.

We don't despise the people, we despise their silly delusion.

Personally, I don't care about the delusion. In some respects, I find the mythology of modern-day religions as interesting as the mythology of defunct religions. For example, I love Christmas, even the parts the Christians tried to superimpose over the Pagan holidays. I like the nativity story and consider it just another mythical tradition heaped atop Saturnalia, Sol Invictus, and Yule.

And the fact that they want to make it the absolute law of the land.

This is where I draw the line. Although few of them dare admit it, if they had the power to do so dedicated Christians (as opposed to nominal ones) would roll laws back to the medieval theocracy era. Actually, one dedicated Christian did admit this to me. She said everything with humanity went wrong starting with the Renaissance. It's not a typical utterance, but an honest one by a dedicated Christian.
