Thanks for help on that. I would like to know the affiliation of some more of the folks who did what was done to me at Eastern Washington University... and who "enforced" my rights.

"But Jesus changed all that when he said that you have committed adultery with a woman if you lust
after her in your mind."

This is a deep subject. One angle I keep in mind is that He was talking with folks
for whom metacognition might have been pretty new...as is the case in every generation. In context, He may have been emphasizing the importance of being conscious of our thoughts.

Yanniru continued:
"Now for the first time, thinking became subject to the law. It was a perfect vehicle for crowd control, as Constantine demonstrated. "

I don't know if that is the first time. What is your source. It is an interesting idea and I won't fault it as a rough draft idea.

Yanniru:
"Jews even have a prayer for doubt. Doubt is a good thing in Judaism, but not Christianity."

The value of belief is sometimes over-rated and sometimes under-rated. One can also suffer practical pain for lack of faith in appropriate process.

Yanniru:
"So in conclusion, various religions can be judged by how many freedoms they allow. Since God gave us free will, it is to be presumed that we should maximize the number of freedoms, and the jewish religion does that more than any other..."

Are you saying our Constitution was founded by Jews?

Not teasing,
Mike
