Religion certainly exerts strange pressures and unnecessary stress on people who believe.
What is so perplexing is to the extremes people go about everyday things that to the rest of us are so ordinary that what is revealed here makes me wonder about the lengths people go to assert the extraordinary at such complicated, convoluted mental acrobatics.

It's difficult to criticize Israel because many will call you anti semite.
Israel is aparthied toward the palistenians.
Pisses me off.
not quite--but the theory is the same. This rabid, outdated, ideology of race as the supreme example defining a nation.
It isn't a nation it's a culture.
If you think Europeans, or English are any better you are sadly mistaken.
Don''t know what you know about the
It's worth looking at to understand - along with pre WWI and the empires and control of Africa, and what's often called the middle east.
