Everyone is affect by the environment they were raised it. If someone's parents are atheists would you be as offended by the kid having posters of Darwin? I think your issue is that religion is involved, though what do I know.

I'll admit that religion tends to be the biggest offender when it comes to raising close-minded children with zero future, but no, there are other factors. What you're still missing is the extremity to which this kid is affected by his upbringing. In no other first-world country would you find this.

While I (very, very strongly) suspect you're right, it would be interesting to see numbers.

Just because he wants to grow up to be a Rabbi? I know kids in America that want to be preachers. It's not that weird.
