As a religious man, Roddenberry's Trek would bother me.

I honestly don't think very it's likely that everybody would be an atheist.

I mean seriously EVERY religion is suppost to be gone?

Did Roddenberry actually know how many of those and how diverse in belief they are when he came up with that idea?

I don't think he cared. It's one of the few things I agree with him on.

Whatever personal feelings Roddenberry may have had, with Trek he stressed that people were free to believe in whatever religion they wanted, including no religion (the exception seemed to be with religions in which some super computer or machine following corrupted programming was in charge).

I would substute the word "optimistic" for idealized.

YMMV.

By a strange coincidence I watched Balance of Terror last night, and Kirk acknowledges during the teaser that they recognized numerous faiths.

Well, you're still talking about one man's personal idea of the future, or rather, "the future according to Gene Roddenberry."

Yeah, despite his own feelings about religion, there are more indications than not that it was alive and well in Trek since TOS. He may have recanted that in later interviews, but it really doesn't stick, IMO.
