    was the first religion to sanction women getting divorces and owning property.

      It must have (like other religions) a big spectrum of orthodoxy and differences.

      Plus, I really don't know enough about the religion and the culture to judge.  I think we've been shown the worst side of it, and not much about the good parts of it in this decade+ campaign to demonize and create the new boogiemen for our military industrial complex.

      I'm pretty fed up with all organized religions too, so there's that.

      From here on out, no one can escape the havoc wrought by the unmitigated Class, Climate and Terror Wars.
