    Brainwash! LOL. If you look up the definition of "orthodox," it is the conforming of what is accepted as right or true; not independently-minded; and unoriginal. We as a community of people have been taught and sometimes brainwashed since birth to conforming. That is an unfortunate. However, if we look past the "traditionalism" of religions and really read the scriptures (no matter what religion), we can see past all the legalities and learn that "humanity" is what is most important. wink

    Ditto to Abby Campbell. 
    That is exactly why people cling to their religious beliefs -   Brainwashing as a child.  This abusive treatment of children is key to the inherent societal problems we face today.   Adults are blinded to reality by the severe  childhood indoctrination practices of their respective religious.
    Because they are all taught that their own religion is more important than all others, they have no qualms about doing harm to those who do not adhere to their particular brainwashed ideas and beliefs. 
    This is truly a sad commentary on the state of humanity, to say the least.

    I agree with Abby and d.William. I also think that clinging tightly to a religious doctrine offers some people comfort.  There are a lot of "unknowns" in life and sometimes clinging tightly is a way to avoid the fears that accompany a questioning mind and soul.  Fear is what lies beneath all things that seem to inhibit humanity's potential - anger, greed, hate can all be tied back to fear. Fear of being "wrong", fear of things you don't know and understand etc. That's why so many extremely religious people "have" to cling to the belief that they are right at everyone else's expense - deep down the fear the possibilities.
