This quite seriously reminds me of what a good many fundamentalistic religious (my principal acquaintance is with the Christian variety) do with the “traditions” of faith these days: that is, of course, invent restrictions and rules and whatnot that have little or no basis in historical Christianity and demand adherence. I suspect this is a common foible. Why, seems to me we even do it on the scale of just our own lives in how we remember our own pasts. How very silly we can be.

    And I usually just leave a flip comment. Gee whiz.
