Does the World Go Through Religious Periods?
Back To Top
Decent society already experiences religious bigotry and hatred as it is. For example, homophobia is rife throughout religious institutions.
Now we have the latest bizarre episode of persecution by religious nuts. This time, in India, hardline Hindus are violently protesting against and preventing women of menstruation age from entering religious temples.
As with homophobia, there is no rational reason for such prejudice except through ignorance and arrogance.
I suppose if there is any rationale behind such a ridiculous ban it would be that women will be left to roam around and fall victim to marauding Hindu gang-rapers who of course have a need to prove their cultural masculinity.
How much longer will decent society tolerate the bizarre, crude, and primitive ways of religious followers. All in the name of God?
