The problem, Moksha, is not that you're trying to make a point, but that YOU'RE the one trying make the point.
As Rabbi Hillel has said, "If not me then who?".
Someone needs to stand up to threats of violence in the Chapel and assault in the Temple, whether they are made in the name of conservative politics or not. Did anyone else voice this concern? As a matter of fact if you look what has been written, there are a number of people who also share this concern. Sometimes I may be bolder than others and take the lead. Sometimes I follow. The important point here is standing up for the integrity of religion so it is not tainted by hatred and violent actions or usurped by political ideology.
Trying to shoot the messenger sounds like the ploy of an apologist, but you should ask yourself if this particular issue is one which you want to defend. The safety of members and and the sanctity of the institution should be considered well beyond sticking barbs into Moksha.
