    The problem I see with the blockquoted statement is this: it is possible, I think, to have an unquestioning loyalty while also using your brain and engaging in serious debate.

    I took a Torah course at a Conservadox Synagogue in Boston at the invitation of the Rabbi there, whom I knew from ecumenical work in social justice in the area. I have no doubt that he, and everyone else in that class had a loyal and unquestioning belief in YHWH, and I can tell you, without a doubt, everyone in that class engaged in spirited debate about exactly what it means to have that belief.

    That, I think, is healthy if you're going to engage in religion.
