I agree that political extremism often transmuted religiosity. However you see this also the politics of people who are politically mainstream such as Mercurial and Emily Davison. I am surprised by your links- this is not an area that I have done research into. However there is Religion and there is Religion- someone who would be attracted by happy clappy pop Evangelicalism might not be at all attracted to auld licht Presbyterian pietism or Confessional Lutheranism.This is probably because homosexual males are more religious, on average, than the general population.
Political extremism is just transmuted religiosity.
