    there is every reason to condemn bigotry relating to "standing with a person of another faith." You choose to participate in the tenets of the religion so it may make sense to you. But to a lot of us out here it's insensitive at best, and for those who choose to suspect the worst, bigotry.

    It's easier to rule a group of people by appealing to bigotry. Every religion has one or another variation on this theme, and they all have rules and tenets that prevent the followers from questioning the hierarchy. But in the final analysis, it's all just an excuse to aggrandize one group ("the chosen") at the expense of another ("the fallen").
