They are obviously getting away with it, because if they didn't someone would have already slapped them with reason for making such a big deal about religious differences. lol. I mean, a bunch of jews got all hot and bothered (and pulled out the guns) when a muslim politician tried to go into 'their' dome on the rock(I think that's the right one) as a peace offering of sorts in 2000. O_o!
"You're a muslim! You don't look like a Jew! Get out!" *shoots*
check out the vid link for more examples of religion being used as an excuse
Actually: I went to a catholic school so I was a pretty religious kid until 3rd grade. believed in god, prayed before bed, eating, the whole works. Only thing I didn't get done was getting baptized. My parents weren't religious, so they just looked at my religiousness as an amusing quirk and let it be by neither encouraging or discouraging. Just ~3 years of mass and religious prayers pretty much 'brainwashed' me to be religious until I 'snapped out' of it. Now, I 'snapped' out of it because it was only 3 years and I wasn't in any religious community nor did my parents were actively religious. BUT, if I had a religious community to reinforce this belief + getting more than 3 years of religious influence: I'd be believing in god right now. That's why I bring up community: if you're bombarded with it since you were born and get constant sources of bombardment: you're most likely going to be religious. Religious communities just reinforce their members beliefs so that majority will be religious.
I'd use my sister as an another example. She went to a catholic school and was pretty religious. BUT, since I (atheist now) was around picking at her religious beliefs and has a far greater influence on her than the school + no religious communities to condemn my blasphemies: she pretty much 'converted' to a form of atheism hahaha. *burns in non existent hell*
Get what I mean?
