    is there never any recent evidence of discrimination given? I'm not saying that SA doesn't discriminate but I am saying I find it odd that the 20-years-ago story is the only one I ever see presented.

    Could it be that any discrimination is isolated or simply old news and the meme continues anyway?

    Also, in my experiences with the SA, never was religion even mentioned. No questions asked, no preaching done. They just helped.
