It is hoped that by holding people accountable for acting in forbidden ways, they and others will take seriously the injunctions that such actions are to be avoided.

Eliminating Non-Productive-Diversity in work? How are we to place blame/guilt upon the communities which fail to resolve the ideological-conflicts pointed to by the above questions --- so as to thereby encourage more diligent work on resolving the ideological-conflicts? How are we to identify the individual people who are to be labeled "guilty" and/or "at-fault"? Will it help to blame the unresolved-conflicts as if they were individual people who can be blamed and made to feel guilty and repentant? Be Graciously-Together in the Many-Ways-of-Shalom.
