That's a good thing. I think those right-wing churches have soured a lot of people over the years away from other churches, too. They give Christianity a bad name. That's a little bit of what happened to me, but I always liked Ghandi's statement (paraphrased) that he likes Christ; Christians not so much.
The most admirable believers of any persuasion are, imo, those who live their beliefs and thus serve as an example. As opposed to those who don't live 'em but instead use them as a club against non-believers.

We used to hang with a Canadian* guy named Jim who was an intellectual heavy laborer, a skilled plasterer who read Camus, Antonin Artaud, Andrés Gide and Malraux and so on.

It was easy to assume after knowing him for a few years that he practiced no religion. But when someone said so one day, he replied "Actually, I do. But if you can't tell what it is from watching me, then it means nothing."

*Here without papers, he self-described as a 'frostback.' ;)
