Somebody, please explain paranoia to me! Every religion feels they are being persecuted for their faith. The lunatic who slaughtered the innocent Jews in Pittsburgh did it because Jews were slaughtering Christians . . . What? Like I said, lunatic!
If any faith has a documented claim on being persecuted, it is the Jewish faith. Yet, in Christian churches, both Protestant and Catholic, there is an honest sentiment that they too are under attack for their religious beliefs, especially political attack. Just ask the Muslims if they feel persecuted too!
Karl Marx said that if religion didn’t exist, they would have to invent it, in order to to pacify the masses. Maybe, he should find a paranoia first and then build a religion around it?
Regardless, my heart bleeds for all people who feel victimized but right now . . . we are all JEWS!
