The use of the word "religious" for false religions, such as Islam, is problematic to the extent that it is the same word as might be used for the
true revealed religion, that of the Christian Scriptures.
It is like using the word "knowledge" for every assertion, without distinguishing between true statements and false ones.
It is not a "religious thought process" that is the problem here, it is a false religion that does not value women highly.

I also think that we might be surprised at who we get to meet in heaven, or hell, as the case may be.
