AhemSo, I wanted to explain something here. People like me criticizing religious concepts and organizations are not doing it because they're nasty and they like to attack good faithful people.
They're doing it because they come from a religious culture, with religious references everywhere, in literature, in law, in politics. And they've looked into the model on offer, they've tried the moral, they have often sincerely listened to the supposedly sacred words.
And the conclusion is this is an impasse. Religions develop a form of moral autism. People will seek comfort in it. And ok, I understand life can be so painful it feels like the only option to bear it.
But what I see over and over again is people locked up in a good/bad obsession. It becomes a psychological dysfunction. If you see the devil in your foe, peace will never be reached.
