I don't really understand some of your questions.
I have no degree in the subject, but growing up Mormon, I was taught a great deal of respect for the Jewish people and to respect the covenant between God and the Jewish people. I even contacted a Rabbi about converting twice, the second time in tears after I'd gotten in quite a controversy in Sunday school over a bible verse that really appalled me in its lack of respect for the Law. The Rabbi told me that perhaps God could use me where I was, to educate those in my Sunday School about the truth of Judaism and the Law. And that Judaism felt it was more important to worship as a family in unity than it was where I worshipped God.
What I meant by the elsewhere comment was that many, perhaps even most, comment areas on news websites leave me so sickened that I really ought to just avoid them. I've seen far worse there than on Babble.
