The point you have raised is highly appreciated. It is a sad fact that many Muslims today seem preoccupied with miniscule more like the Pharisees and Sadducees, and thus are losing the spirit and soul of religion. This was the same condition that Imam Ghazali was fighting. The reason for this is the scholars over emphasizing the form of religion as opposed to the inner dimensions. Many questions people ask do not need any specialized knowledge; even the common sense or our own moral conscience can help us decide on such matters. The Prophet himself said, consult your conscience, consult your conscience! Of course, he meant the sound moral conscience that is aware of Allah's judgement.
However, we cannot condemn genuine questions. The Qur'an and the Prophet's traditions exhort us to ask those who know when we cannot make up our minds in regards to the issues we face in life.
