Sikrikim Sickos

Zealots Attack Jerusalem Ice Cream Parlor, Shops - MSNBC 10/18/11

Just so we spread the love around to all the abrahamic religions, this piece exposes some struggles among the ultra-orthodox in Israel. A group by the name of Sikrikim are going around town, vandalizing shops they deem not conservative enough, yelling at 12-year old school girls for dressing too promiscuously. It seems no matter where you go, religious people just cannot stop judging others. It happens all over the world, and it becomes an issue when they take matters into their own hands. For the life of me, I just don't understand it. It's very frustrating for the rest of us to be constantly inundated with stories of this kind from all religions all over the place. If you are offended by modernity, then you should be a recluse. You have no right to go around trashing other people's property if they have different beliefs than you. Why cannot religious people keep their religion to themselves???

Great quote by one of the commenters to the article:
What does it say about what's going on in the mind of these religious zealots that they can't not see someone licking a cock when they see someone licking a ice cream cone.
