Mullah's angle

in response to reader comment: Not only Muslim women

I think what concerns me about fundamentalist religious believers is they run to their book and their holy people to be told what to believe. It doesn't matter which book--people seem to believe just about anything a powerful member of the clergy tells them, and give even their power away to the clergy.

What is it about people that they don't recognize that Mullahs, Popes, and the rest are just master brainwashers that keep them in power and allow them to control the lives of those who fall subject to their interpretations of books written by people?
