Depends on the crazies. Creating an interpretation of some religion to justify violence, for example, is common throughout history for evil people. If it's important to the crazies, it should be important to us.
Bigots and apologists for the crazies will blur the line between the crazies and the peaceful followers of a religion, lumping them all into one group. Rational people, committed to human rights and freedom of expression, aren't afraid to view violent religious fanaticism as a distinct thing that must be dealt with for what it is.
