there is one significant distinction between secular and religious laws, the secular law is disposed off of civil authority. What Israel clearly demonstrated is civil authority can and will abuse religious when pitted at each other through politics. However, what is clearly seen the civil authority is not in any way influenced, engaged, or even thought out other than an vested power to adjudicate matters in Israel. It would of being hard to show it had the judge demonstrate nuanced understanding of the nature of religious / secular conflict with regards to Emmanuel school. It is his error of judgment and coarse approach that reveals our society integrity of democracy since secular authority adjudicated matters without any bias ( if only antagonism ) towards religious. So, while I find the judge to be wrong in what he did, I can't wait to tell you that all the fantasies about Yesh Din and such can be rammed down whoever invented this fantasy throat. Jewish society does not recognize religious courts of any kind.
