Ya know, not only am I a Jew, but I'm also studying to be a Mythologist. I've studied the history of the Jewish people, both the pseudo-mythological and the historically and archaeologically accepted. I have been to Israel where I took part in archaeological digs of two Tels ((Cities built on the remains of older cities, like Tel Aviv)) and Europe, read ancient historical texts referring to or written by the Hebrew people. Based on these credentials I have to come to the conclusion that not only is Leighton Buzzard correct, but you are also full of fucking crap.
I've sat here and read the comments you've left on here over the years, this belief that you apparently hold that literally every single European person on planet Earth has personally harmed Native Americans in some way, and now I'm fucking tired of it. You're full of shit, you're almost as bad as some of these fundy nutjobs. Actually, ya know what, from now on I'm just going to refer to you as 'Neo-BrendanRizzo' because that's essentially what you are. You're both hateful, vindictive, self-righteous assholes who don't know diddly-fucking-shit about the things your insulting. The only difference is the target of your hate.
And for the record, the moil who performed my brother's, mine and my nephew's circumscison was a practicing surgeon who was also ordained as a Rabbi. We don't just hack bits of ourselves off, it is a delicate and very seriously handled procedure. Also, the next time your digging gunk out of your foreskin, just remember, I don't have to X).
I also love bacon and shellfish and the bibilical laws are really considered more like 'guidelines' in the Reform community these days or we just ignore them entirely and try to read into the underlying metaphors in many of the stories, which often boil down to 'don't be a dick'.
