Religion vs. Patriotism.

When Religion takes over patriotism.

Thank you NONE/DXB from Tajerib.

When I first posted this clip, it had a different title... I had adopted my friend None/Dxb's method in citing my own religion ("I am Roman Catholic") as title. Aiming to shock, annoy, and bother readers. A few hours after later, it worked on me; it bothered the the hell out of me, so I opted for another title; this one.

Excellent post, as always, _z.

(Incidentally, I always think of you as Lebanese, and I had no idea you were Roman Catholic, so you must be doing something right...)

I am an atheist. does that make me more Lebanese. or makes me nothing in Lebanon. I wonder.

I've seen it on another blog and I'll put the same comment that I put there... "Speechless..."....Praying for the time when we'll only introduce ourselves as Lebanese.
The sad thing is that I had a room in a lebanese residency for students for only one month in september and I was really mad when it was time for the election of the residents comity, the same old "comptine"...t2etalo christian v/s musulman and for sure they stopped talking to each other and it was like hell (just to elect a president and some members for some leisure activities!)...same ha netghayar..2 bad :(

ehh... mish ziyede... that's not really the issue, I don't think. It's a common caricature, but it's more complex than this facile reduction.
