    Where do you think the source of all liberalism and the belief in the sanctity of human life comes from? in the world comes from? But that is neither here nor there. I still maintain that communities that are run with integrity and strong moral and ethical guidelines, are usually better at taking care of their problems than the civil authorities. I hope that does not make me a tea party candidate.

      Are you stating that you agree with the Rabbi and that the alleged victim of child sexual abuse should not notify the police?  Or am I misreading you?

      it is history .... it is world events even now. If you think that the three religions I mentioned are the "source" of liberalism or the belief in the sanctity of life, then I guess you didn't read the texts.  You might want to explain that to the Egyptian children in the Passover story or those caught in the crossfire of land grabbing to form the nation of Israel. You might want to explain that to the victims of the Crusades or the children and pregnant women caught in the crossfire of Jihadism.   In fact, your statement has so small of a relationship to reality, I'm not sure I even needed to address it.

      In these communities that you feel should be shielded from the laws of the larger community of nations, just which "strong moral and ethical guidelines" are you referring to?  Is the rabbi depicted an example of them?
