Do you think the stormcloaks are uneducated, savage beasts?

Or do you think the opposite?

No, I think they are justified in fighting for what they believe is right, I just don't like Ulfric and don't believe he's doing it for the same reason his soldiers are.

I don't think they're uneducated or anything they're just not looking at the big picture.

For an on-topic post:

I guarantee you if you waltz into ANY country in the world with devout citizens and tell them they have to renounce their primary deity as mortal then you're going to have a civil war on your hands. One could argue real-world religions driving wars until you're blue in the face but in a fantasy world where deities are proven to exist beyond reasonable doubt and frequently interfere in mortal dealings (at least the daedra do) it becomes much more of a legitimate cause to want to go to raise the pitchforks and torches.

Except they did worship Talos and weren't persecuted until Ulfric came along.

Except Skyrim has always been part of the Empire, so there was no marching in and the Imperials worship Talos too, yet are not the ones throwing a fit. As well as the fact that the ban was not enforced until Ulfric decided he couldn't keep his s*** together. But that's okay, since Ulfric doesn't actually care about Talos worship, it is entirely only a means to an end for him.

Are the actions of Stormcloaks justifiable because of the Talos ban? Maybe. However, when you look at the bigger picture of the whole issue, they appear quite silly.
