Even that is sort of lost in the current x-men movies and comics.
There are good and people in every group. All Muslims are not terrorists planning on causing the downfall of the Western world...but many people act like they are. Not all Christians are narrow minded uptight bigots...but many people act they are.
Yes, the XMEN were created as a statement about bigotry and intolerance of the times....that it still holds true today. People tend to be afraid of and hate what they are not and do not understand. The first time the most of the public heard of the FF...they were fighting to save the city of New York. The first time most of the public heard of the XMEN is because of the destruction caused by mutants fighting mutants. People's first perceptions are always hard to overcome.
