However, even this evidence is dismissed by many of those who do compare the West and the non-West who construct a dichotomy between those “extreme” [non-western] brands of religion portrayed as being caught-up in, or even fermenting, bitter violence elsewhere, and the cozy mainstream denominational religions which form part of the cultural backdrop for those of us in the West who watch these “tribal” outbreaks on our TV screens from the safety of our living-rooms.
