10. I frankly didn't know who Diane Medved was until you highlighted her name

 

I read the USA Today column and thought it made sense. Maybe that is a clue here. Does the fact that I read her words and agreed with her mean I am a religious Jew as she is? No. Does it mean I have the same social conservatism views as her? Absolutely not.

What it does say is we can find common cause with a lot of people--even ones we don't agree with on many things.

I didn't see her presenting false equivalency--I saw her defending moderation as a principle.
