But then it could be argued that raising her with this belief is no worse than a child brought up in a very religious catholic or muslim household. Or any other religion really.
While I wouldn’t deny that such things would happen in families that are members of other religions it still doesn’t make it right. You have to take into account the norms of behaviour and attitude of the society the girl is living in. For example if this happened in a Catholic family (or in a family of a different Christian faith) I would still say the same thing about it. I dare say a lot of very religious Catholic and Muslim households would not let this happen.
Yes you could come up with examples of different societies with different “norms” but do you really want to live in a world where it’s OK for a child to say such things?
No, I didn’t say it’s right, I just said that it does happen in other cultures, not to this extent, perhaps, but then it’s all in context really. This is the most extreme religion “available” at the moment, so people are gonna get insulted and offended at it. I’ll bet you that in about 10 years there’ll be some even worse group calling themselves religious that people will object even more to.
I just don’t understand the mindset. How can you be filled with so much hate? Wouldn’t it be exhausting, if nothing else?
I don’t think they do hate, I think its just what they’ve been brought up to be. They were born into it. Well, not the one reading in the film, but I’d say it’s more about power and feeling important than any actual hate he has of the world.
And just to clarify, I do not in any way think that these people are right in their beliefs
