When will it dawn on all of you that this problem has absolutely nothing to do with a persons religion? It has everything to do with the perversion of religious sentiment to the service of political ends. Indeed, this problem had been with us since the time of Pharoh. It was the silly bickering and petty court intrigues of the various priestly cults that prompted Anknaten to declare the Aten to be the 'ONLY" god in the Egyptian heaven.
