In my religion, it is respectful to freely
question, with good will, my statements and textual citations -- whether on grounds of consistency, fairness, source of authority or other !
Any religion that does not smile on such questions should not take offense but realize the questioner has achieved one of the main purposes of a good religion -- the questioner cares about the truth !
We should assume God merely tolerates what
the earthly authorities say, in their humble condition of mind. Earthly authorities are often wrong so we need freedom to converse without harrassment.
Yanniru's best point, imho, is that the modern Jewish religion has historically accepted dissent in the spirit in which it is offered.
