(still laughing) You bring up a good point though. I am no psychologist, but I'm sure there's a technical term for what ails someone who is so oppressed in their religion, in their own streets, and even at home that it has a backlash and they end up worse than what they originally hated so much and avoided.

I know everyone has heard 'it's the church kids that you really had to beware of'. It brings out such a curiosity or maybe rebellion to be taught that everything is from the devil, including your own natural feelings that God gave us in the first place. I'm not sure, but I feel that's what ails many Muslims. Then they come to the West and really hate us (or blame us) for bringing out these evil thoughts.
