"I can’t help but feel empathy for the Stormcloaks after talking to one of the priests in Riften. It must be hard to have lived their own traditional life with their own beliefs and to have that all challenged when you just want to continue your lives as you usually do."

Imperials have it worse: they are even more fanatical about Talos and have worshiped him for five centuries (while Nords only started worshiping him as a god somewhere in last 200 years, before that he was just another part of Hero worship besides Ysgrammor, Wulfarth, etc.)
The only reason why you don’t hear Imperials complain as much is because they know just how ruthless and dangerous the Dominion is (the guys practically committed genocides over entire Imperial cities) and thus are more understanding of the idea of clenching teeth for a few decades (once the Concordant is gone, Talos worship will be restored)… whereas Nords seem to think that Cyrodiil is still a utiopia or something.
