It's not all bad. I've seen the good that organized religion can do in 3rd world countries, where the church is still one of the primary focal points of the community.

No... depending on the sect they very well may be. There are extremely zealous factions of both Judaism and Islam that believe that God's law is still "an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth" and can cite holy scripture to back them up.
