The memorial to homosexuals is inappropriate, as it glorifies anti-Torah behavior.
It also misleads people into thinking that homosexuality is okay, which it clearly is not, as it is forbidden.
By glorifying homosexuality you are putting a stumbling block before the blind, and that is also something forbidden by the Torah, the sin of misleading people.

Slavery is not actually forbidden in the Torah or the Talmud, though there are certain laws pertaining to its practice.
Living well, exuberantly and luxuriously is not forbidden either (as long as one keeps the mitzvah). A Torah life does not require the rejection of physical pleasure, be it a nice house, fine clothing, good food, or sex with one's wife.
The real sin of modern day Idolotory is "athiests" who, if pressed, will admit that they have slipped into philsophical solopsism and secretly believe that they are God (or that they are somehow creating the universe with there own minds).
To a lesser extent, there are those who believe that "with science anything is possible". That technology gives us total dominion over nature, leaving no room for God.
Also, there ARE plenty of "Hippie Jews" out there who worship the sun and the stars, trees, stones, mountains and lakes. Not to mention Buddha images, Shiva, Kali, Ganesh etc...
Then there are the "communist Jews" who quite literally worship "images" of Karl Marx, and Lenin and Mao....
Idoloatory is often compared to adultery, with Israel taking the role of the wife in her covenant with God. Another "modern" form of idolatry is the cult of "falling in love". Women seem to be especially prone to this (despite the fact that most famous romantic poets are men). They idolize their lovers to the point that it replaces God.

This has nothing to do with religion . The rules set down are clear.
The court will study the "RULES", and than make sure that Hebrew National is living up to the rules. They claim that is the way they produce their food. If they do not do as they say, the courts will find them guilty.
Hebrew National made a contract with the people, and as such have to live by that contract, or it will be dissolved by the courts.
That is why justice is blind.

Too much money floating around; too few smart heads to use it effectively.
J Street are nothing but a bunch of trolls, they should be IGNORED and eventually they will go away!

You mean some Jews use their money in a way of blycotting or better, encouraging certain policies?
And not against Jewish communities in Judea & Samaria?
No wonder some Jewish youngsters need a college education.
