Grunberg has lived in New York for 20+ years but his English wasn't nearly as good as Feldman's (who learned it more recently)

Maybe we should give believers a percentage of a vote? If you do the supernatural your vote counts just for 50% :P

she said after fleing from her sect she had to move away because the jurisdicton and politicians in her quarter of NY depend on the sects votes

(the journalist/writer being Arnon Grunberg - see youtube)

you shouldn't forget that those extreme sects have 10-20 children, resulting in growing political influence. This applies for all religions

yeah, that's the same that I saw. indeed interesting
erix    2021-09-27 15:13:55 UTC
Ah, she went to Berlin

There is a long discussion from her with a prominent Dutch journalist, highly recommended

Her German is stunning, but she grew up speaking Yiddish, in one interview she said she had problems because of her weird English.

She moved to Germany a few years back, right? /me off to google

The sect that Deborah Feldmann escaped from was a pretty absurd extreme. I was interested to see how quickly and well she learned her new languages (English and German). Fascinating story.
