RE: Recommend Some Literature
I recommend Paul Auster's The New York Trilogy; "City of Glass" specifically. It deals with one horrendous result of people taking religious beliefs to the point of an immoral atrocity too great for anybody to defend. It is simultaneously a fascinating look at identity and insanity. I'll just say that at a certain point I just had to cry while reading it.

The other two stories in the trilogy are worth checking out too. They also deal with identity, but I didn't find them as fascinating as "City of Glass".
