    Before Monotheism, there existed many gods, some of them national gods, and they had different charachters, some were severe and some were loving, etc. Men created their gods in their own image and their own need, so the gods also had a variety, as humans do. Did the situation change after monotheism? It couldn't, because human needs differ. Within the framework of Judaism there were also many sects during 2nd Temple times, and even Jewish Christians. Even after the Second Temple, when Rabbinism won the day, sects have developed. Today we have the Haredim, the Orthodox, Conservatives, Reform and more, even Jews for Jesus. M3en shape their religion according to their own character and needs. I wouldn't blame the religion of the Kahanists. This is shaped by the character of the Kahanists themselves. And they are HATERS. They also hate Arabs and probably others that would not agree with them. I heard Meir Kahana himself referring to the "stinking (Israeli) Arabs", for whom he demanded "national service" instead of IDF service, which should be fulfilled in the form of hard labor, like building roads, not office work. He was a hater who was killed by haters, and his killers will also die...
