Interesting. This reminds me of a CFI meetup post I made months ago in which I asked if whether it would be a good idea for atheists to produce atheist literature which said the books were made from recycled Bibles and recycled Korans. That idea was sharply criticized by you, (and for some reasons I can understand, such as that many Muslims would respond in a hostile way) even though it was a matter of freedom of expression in religious matters. Yet the CFI statement to the UN says "CFI also declared that suppressing the freedom of expression when religion is concerned is an intolerable abrogation of basic human rights." [It said in the context partly about a film which defamed (in my opinion) the name and reputation of the dead Muslim prophet.] However I am not saying that you forbade me from acting upon my tentative proposal, instead you mainly only said why you thought CFI as an organization should not enact it (but I never asked CFI as a group to enact it anyway).
