They're Up The wall

The BBC news report on Women of the Wall shows the hypocracy of the religious mind, and the lack of a sense of humour that makes them fail to spot irony.

"...rabbi Ovadia Yosef denounced women's prayer groups that wear the tallit at the Western Wall as acting to promote a feminist cause and not out of piety." - A well-put pious argument rabbi, and not at all promoting male domination of the relgion, eh?

And, don't the women get it? They're claiming unfair treatment on religious matters in a society dominated by dogmatic relgious males? Why bother. Pick a relgion where women are already treated as equals - granted you're going to have to skip all the mainstream religions. Sod it, become atheists.
