    No need to be so sarcastic. If you’re an atheist, that’s your business, but, those of us who believe, can do without your sarcasm, thank you very much. Frankly, I can’t see why you bother accessing articles on religious matters.

    The manic ultra orthodox, who are jostling & spitting upon Christians in Tel Aviv, revolting in Jerusalem & beating up female pilgrims to the remains of King Solomon’s Temple & refusing to wear the uniform of their own Nation, either as medics or chaplains (actually, not educated enough 2 b a Chaplain), no sons of King David here; & who have absoloutely no idea on how to sing
    His Psalter: therefore, we must send in the Vienna Boys &
    King’s Cambridge to Our Lady Woman of Valour, Tel Aviv
    to give a Master Class!
