Is religious prejudice the worst type of prejudice?

Prejudice is prejudice. Whatever form it touches you; it is equally as bad as whatever form it touches another person. Prejudice has no 'degrees' of medium, good, bad, terrible, or worse. At the same time, some prejudice can be ignored. For example: I'm one of Jehovah's Witnesses, the brunt of religious prejudice. We're constantly called a 'cult'. We're viewed as anti-Christian for not celebrating Christmas, birthdays; for not believing in the trinity; for not believing in eternal torment. But NONE of that prejudice bothers us. We hold our heads up, and just keep knocking on them doors.
