Any belief system, _as a belief system_, is probably reconcilable with
any social structure. Contradiction lies in the realm of practice rather
than belief. (I didn't believe this at one time, but it really seems
possible to make any belief or verbal formula fit any practice. Milton
turned Christ's condemnation of divorce into an argument for divorce.)
When contradiction enters strongly into daily practice, then (and I
think only then) do people begin to notice contradictions within belief
or between belief and practice.
