"Are you the Judean People's Liberation Front?"

The value of religious practice is often difficult to assess from the
outside. And it is often more entertaining to argue with/against
people that you agree 90% on compared to arguing with/against people
that you only agree 10% on.
Personally, I find that the experience of zazen helps me move towards
an attitude like: "I am human, I consider nothing human alien to me."
At least until another human comes into the room :)
