So I think I'm finally learning how to speak about Judaism.
That is, I'm learning how to speak about religion as a process, rather than as a thing. And this tends to make the whole discussion a heck of a lot less contentious.
In media theorist's terms, I guess what I'm trying to do is show how Judaism is less about content than contact. The Torah, for example, can be understood as a way for people to interact - a tool for discussions. (That's why you're supposed to have ten people around to read it.) It is not an end in itself, but a means. Not a message as much as a medium.
