Woman beaten on Jerusalem bus for refusing to move to rear seat

I guess it's not just Christians and Muslims who are fucked up! Damn the lot of 'em to hell!

Well, she did say "No!", and got beaten for it, but it reminds me so much of Rosa Parks, who also said "No!" to sitting at the back of the bus, which helped to kick-start the civil rights movement.

It is Rosa Parks all over again. Well, I have de ja vu.

The other part of the story is the Purity Patrol. I thought only the Muslims were doing that.

The more fundamentalist they get, the more alike they are.

This is true. A theocracy under the rule of Haredi rabbis would be as awful as anything produced by Islam.

So very true indeed.  I wonder if coming to an understanding of this fact might sometimes help people to cure themselves of their religious delusions?

No. Of course not. I used to have a whole circle of Hassidic friends. They looked forward to Toracracy -- rule by Torah -- upon the arrival of Messhiach.

It is a complete world view. Small details, like reality, are not a factor.
