I have noticed the more religious a person becomes the more easily he gets angry, if someone were to present an alternative viewpoint then most of them become furious and this ja true for all religions why is that ?

Religious does not mean spiritual. Fanaticism and dogmatism lead to seeing the world in black and white, right and wrong, etc. Easy to anger is a sign of fanaticism. The marks of a spiritual person are listed clearly in Ashtapadi 8 of Sukhmani Sahib, which begins:

"The God-conscious being is always unattached, as the lotus in the water remains detached. The God-conscious being is always unstained, like the sun, which gives its comfort and warmth to all. The God-conscious being looks upon all alike, like the wind, which blows equally upon the king and the poor beggar. The God-conscious being has a steady patience, like the earth, which is dug up by one, and anointed with sandal paste by another. This is the quality of the God-conscious being: O Nanak, his inherent nature is like a warming fire. || 1 || The God-conscious being is the purest of the pure; filth does not stick to water. The God-conscious being’s mind is enlightened, like the sky above the earth. To the God-conscious being, friend and foe are the same. The God-conscious being has no egotistical pride. The God-conscious being is the highest of the high. Within his own mind, he is the most humble of all. They alone become God-conscious beings, O Nanak, whom God Himself makes so. || 2 || The God-conscious being is the dust of all. The God-conscious being knows the nature of the soul. The God-conscious being shows kindness to all. No evil comes from the God-conscious being. The God-conscious being is always impartial."
