    That would be fair - but too easy. Not nice to pick on morons, even those with friends in high places.

    i go off on people when they leave hats on beds. bad, bad juju. wonder if it is worse on boats? I divorced my first, third, and fourth wives because they sat my hat on the bed. that caused the relationships bad luck. or maybe because i thought their beliefs were ignorant and refused to respect them.

    i think the new scapegoat would be video games, rap music was so '90s.

    as far as not respecting beliefs of someone when you think they are ridiculous, THAT'S the problem these days.

    Goes back before the Crusades, probly to the origin of civilization and has continued without interruption. That's exactly why I respect boat traditions, local culture traditions, religious traditions, etc so matter how silly I personally think they are - as long as they don't infringe on others. Forcing a banana overboard without drama is not a problem; certainly pales in comparisons to what successful religions have done when they invaded new lands.
    Real. It is bad luck to put a hat on a bed - known in many cultures where hats are everyday wear anyway, including Texas cowboys. Got 20 hats on the wall but never a one on the bed. :cowboy2:

    Not all beliefs are worthy of respect. Some are worth of apathy, some are worthy of ridicule, some are worthy of disdain.

    I disagree with the idea that the problem we have now are due to the lack of respecting others beliefs. Instead, I think the problem is too many people are willing to believe things that are really silly, and sometimes destructive.

    Too many people are willing to turn off their rational thought and accept ideas that they should know have no basis in reality.

    I don't apologize for promoting rationality over superstition.
