I think the thing I find most troubling about fundamentalism, whether in politics or in religion, is this: it is the declaration of war that fundamentalists wage on anyone whose opinion or understanding of truth is different.

You'd be cryptic too if you were uprooted wherever you went. You can't blame your ancestors for keeping quiet about their Hebrew origins, they wanted to live.

The hardest thing to do sometimes is exposing what you know to others. What would they do with it? Would they abuse it or take it and become better than you? Isn’t it yours for keepsakes? I mean, common you worked so hard to get to where you are just for someone else to step in and count their...
