I'm neither challenging religion in whole nor am I agreeing with fundamentalist fallout therefrom, Cricket. What I intended from this side of the screen is that simple humans are involved.

Humans are not raised inside of (nor do they exist within) a vacuum. As individuals, as peoples, we're susceptible to the influences surrounding us, outside our faith--including foreign policy. And so, I have difficulty wondering religion and doctrine may exist perfectly well as written.

Again, religion and beliefs live through what I perceive and stated above as a "very bare and human sense." Imperfect.

That is not an interpretation of their religion, it is what they have said and how they have acted.

Yes, indeed. Hence my posts. xoxoxox

Love, Deb
