Saw this today, thought it was useful in clarifying terminology frequently used when people talk about certain religiously inspired problems in our world at the moment. 

Clearly it's the middle one that we should be worried about and is the one diametrically opposed to Western secular democracy, freedom of speech, conscience and gender equality etc. The top one is just a set of ideas (and should be able to be criticised using argument, logic, evidence and ridicule as any idea should) and the bottom one is a set of people that although overlap with the middle group deserve respect and dignity not for the ideas they hold necessarily but because they are human-beings like the rest of us.
