Is it less embarrassing to see the Torah mauled by civil servants than to ask a woman if she is ritually pure?!?! Better to see an embarrassing and humiliating fight on holy ground than to help your fellow Jew understand the Law or their offense with grace (by the way, I see no place D'varim that supports a woman not wearing Tefillin or Tzitzit, 'Hear O Israel'...right...not 'Hear only a subset of Israel')?!?! What a strange world we live in...I have to say that I don't wear Tefillin, (being a woman I hope that Torah is written upon my heart and mind) only Tzitzit, but I would be extremely upset if someone tried to disrobe me or commander mine while I was praying. Still the absolute worst offence today is to the Torah...who will excuse themselves for this debauchery?
