    I might be a secular Jew, but the right of the religious Jews to practice their religion as they see fit, its theirs alone, as much as we might like or dislike some of their practices, we must respect that right, as much as we must demand, that they respect our right to see our religious practices as we please, respect begets respect, and we as Jews, should learn to respect each other in the way we live, and have the right to live, under the law of the land.
