    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.
