    I stand for the exact opposite of all of that.

    It is a paradox.

    Because we each person counts as an individual and not as a devalued-nonentity trapped inside of some group or belief system where we do not count as an individual with our own personal identity.

      Ephesians 4:14 . . . so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes.
      Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

          It's because they old a strong personalized opinion towards that belief system. As others mentioned, a conditioned belief as a child. A child has no belief system. Barely a sense of "I" in the world, if any. What I mean by "I" is not the consciousness which resides within a person. But the "I" of all the conditioned systems programmed into a person. Sometimes programs completely die out from stagnation, or they consistently update.
