Today's Religion Section Roundup

First of all, there was a new story from the "Religion" section about Jews saying that (even though the numbers prove otherwise) they don't feel as discriminated against as Muslims.

Elsewhere, a blogger named Jerry Silverman wrote something about a Pew survey on Jewish people's religious feelings and suggest that Jews get more involved with religious school, camps, and other Jewish institutions.

As a fellow atheist I don't particularly mind people dumping on the Jewish religion, but these comments seemed especially mean spirited and directed at the people who practice it, which is quite different:




Classy as always.
