If we start down that road, we'll be here all night... I don't know
any religion that follows what their religious texts say precisely -
they often contradict themselves, so it's impossible. Either we
dismiss religious law entirely, or we define it to be what people
actually observe, defining it to be what the religious texts say will
get us nowhere.
