Ahead of its time, since there seems to be a revival of this topic in real life right now.
It funny how the Bajorans don't have to question the reality of the beings they worship.
But they have to question whether they're being ignorant of worshiping aliens who are simply advanced life forms, who are barely aware of their existence.
That made them appear very naive and childlike at times.
And then you got "Accession" where they reinstated the Bajoran caste system.
One Bajoran pushes priest off a ledge killing him, because he belonged to an unclean caste, and refused to resign.
And He admitted it calmly as if he was explaining what he had just eaten for breakfast.
That's unfortunately how it is in real life as well, isn't it.
