Alphakronik: It seems that Jews are the most thin-skinned people in the world. And, no...that's not an anti-semitic statement.
wistfulparanoia: inclemency: It doesn't actively convert people because it has ingrained racist xenophobic tendenciesThat's absolutely and patently false. You're farking just making up reasons on the spot out of your personal anti-Semitism!. At least make an attempt to do research on the subject.On the Orthodox side of Judaism, it's difficult to convert because there are a ton of obligations (holidays, prayers before and after food, other strict rules). For one to want to take on these obligations, they would need to be very committed.The difficult process also weeds out those who are converting for ulterior motives: e.g.- to marry into the faith, as opposed to for the pure reasons of believing in the tenets.RE: your friend. As a typical anti-Semite (see also Hitler), you justify your "axe to grind" with an entire religion because of the experience of your friend. You call your friend's becoming more religious "indoctrination" out of your personal biases. I know many who have turned to faith after a death in the family. Saying Mourners Kaddish (prayers mourning for the dead) for a family member who passed away is a Jewish tradition. Your friend probably took that on, and other traditions on his own. Nobody FORCES anybody to do what they are not comfortable doing.Please educate yourself: being agnostic does not justify your anti-Semitism.
Enlightened Liberal: T.rex: This guy either, and don't say otherwise, or else he'll be owned a pound of flesh.So who were the space Jews in Star Trek: the Ferengi or Bajorans?
lindalouwho: I saw a really bad disguise, not a Jewish sterotype.When you're a hammer, everything looks like a nail.
