But the influence of the ultra -orthodox is too strong - and out of proportion to their representation in the total population. Unfortunately, the Secular majority don't seem to have the will power or political resolve to do anything about this intolerable situation. I have always been an Athiest - one of my main reasons being the way organised religion behaves on behalf of its God. To me it is obvious that God didn't create Man - Man created God to use for his own selfish purposes -and nowhere is this better demonstrated than in Orthodox Judaism and its attitude to -and treatment of -- those who not adhere to its beliefs. The fact that we - as a declared modern democratic society -continue to tolerate this monstrous situation in the beginning of the 21st century is bewildering as it is frightening. Can someone suggest how we can rise up and defeat this religious tyranny?
