More like the other way around.  People are uncomfortable with "that",
wherein "that" is a cluster of activities.  The label's interesting,
but not the main point: whether you call it religion or not, it wasn't
welcome.

If you have a religion which compels you to build LED circuits or
learn a new programming language, more power to you and whatever
demons/gods are possessing you.
