It's the aggressive ruining of peoples lives and illegal activities that are the major problem, not the beliefs themselves, but the active policies. There are plenty of 'churches' that fleece their followers for cash (usually the evangelical/charismatics, when it comes to Christian flavours) - these guys fleece their followers AND have been known to accuse detractors of being paedophiles and leafleting their neighbourhoods to that effect, have attempted to infiltrate the FBI, have close ties with the police force in places like Clearwater etc, etc.
That's the problem, not the old 'who can be the biggest prick about other peoples beliefs' game.
