As a former Roman Catholic who left Catholicism for reason and Deism, I believe a key reason so many victims fall prey to clergy pedophiles is because, as was made evident in the wonderful film “Spotlight”, the clergy are looked at by the faithful as God’s direct representative, so how can you say “no” to God? It’s very important for people to learn that God gave them innate reason and not religion.
Regarding the crimes being committed by the Jewish state of Israel, how can a Jew embrace Judaism and not blindly support the Jewish state of Israel? An objective look at the Hebrew Bible makes it clear that Judaism teaches Jewish superiority, Deuteronomy 7:6 which claims God chose the Jews “above all people that are upon the face of the earth” is just one of many key teachings in Judaism that promotes Jewish superiority. Add to these, teachings which promote the Jewish state of Israel over all, such as Isaiah 60:12 which claims God said any Gentile nation that will no support and serve Israel will be “utterly wasted” and it is impossible not to support Israel and its crimes against humanity if you believe in and embrace Judaism.
