The targeted area is no longer considered holy or unholy, and is no longer dedicated to its patron god – spellcasters can cast without penalty or bonus here, regardless of affiliation, and the undead are unaffected. Although this spell is not as useful as the spells that it counters (which, of course, also counter each other), it requires less in way of expensive components, and is also considered less of an offensive act than either. A priest of Dionysus who chooses to desecrate an altar to Athena will start a blood feud, while the same priest who chooses to annul the divine upon the altar is simply furthering a rivalry.
