I say only in the eyes of the ignorant, because the educated minority (who knows what the religion is really about) will know the difference. The ignorant rely on second hand accounts to deduce a religion's worth in an instant as opposed to the educated who devote a great deal into understanding it before judging it.
Unless you've studied every single religion on this planet in detail, that is nothing more than an attempt at a joke.
What about the religion that has "convert 'em or kill 'em" in its book?
Blame it or on the fundies?
