eBay shipper sent me a religious tract - should I note this in feedback?

Did Nabokov(or anyone else for that matter), ever write a notable book about this latter taboo?

Are there any terms for "atheism" or "irreligious" that aren't negative? That is, don't mean that someone is "not a believer." It doesn't matter what language the terms are in or if they're archaic or coinages that never took root. [more inside]
