If that means avoiding the extremely religious, then by all means, avoid them. Frankly, I do, too. I've got relatives who are "there was a storm, but the Lord Jesus kept that tree from falling on our house" religious, and they make me very uncomfortable. Almost like they're aliens, to be honest.

Your last sentence is the really sad one. As long as fundamentalists appeared to try to be consistent, I could have a modicum of respect for them. But now we know beyond a shadow of a doubt that they're more about having power than they are following their own stated beliefs.
