Mayka, i apologize for my part in introducing the subject. I did not intend 
this to go this far. In fact, I regret that I'm contributing to the same thing 
I was upset about on other forums.

Originally I wanted to ask how to deal with my need to resolve these arguments, 
which are ultimately unresolvable. i should not have let it slip that it was 
specifically about religion, although it did have a zen component in that it 
dealt with my desire to know "the truth" and my resentment of people who 
claimed to know "the truth."

i have no intention of pushing religion or politics on anyone. However, I am 
naturally interest in the ways that religion and Zen intersect, and yes, how 
they affect politics, both in negative and positive ways. However, if the board 
prefers, I will not bring it up here.
