A Worthy Cause

Wednesday, 30 July 2008 at 5:00 am Pacific USA Time.

I recently learned about a group, and I find it very interseting.

http://www.footstepsorg.org/challenge.php explains some of the why.

The what is that this group is a private, anonymous support group helping people who want to leave the Chasidic community. I’m not a religious person myself, and I believe strongly in individuals’ rights to choose their own lives, paths, and how they want to worship or honour whatever they believe in. Not everybody born into an insular community wants to stay there, and I appreciate an organisation that helps people find themselves.

I showed this link to a Mormon friend, and he thought that the Chasids sounded like the extreme Mormon polygamist groups. Extreme religions are extreme religions. They work for some people. They don’t work for others. If they don’t work for you, you should have the right to leave.
