Reader comment on: What They Do Not Tell You about Indonesia

Submitted by ondrej kovacic, Mar 19, 2017 15:18

This is a good demonstration of that until faith and, by extension, religion are perceived as an individual matter, and religious regulations more as a recommendation than orders, people of different faith can live side by side, in friendship and understanding. But when religion becomes organized and politicized, fanatics decide on what to believe, how to behave, what to wear, who is better and who is worse, then everything goes wrong and religion poisons everything. And yesssss...It would be nice to see as the last oil well of Saudis dries up, so they could no longer spread the insane wahhabism from the money we pay them.
