Religious nutters... Well, quite. You have engaged in a spirited and courageous blanket defense of religious-inspired political activism, illustrating it with your personal values of tolerance etc...
The problem is that, worldwide, at a WAG, 90% of religious-inspired political activists are right-wingers, often extreme right wingers, and almost always with a strong authoritarian bent. (The patriarch Kirill, Putin's pal, is a case in point.)

I have no intention of according special political privileges to such people (or to you) because they are religious.
