I had never heard this before and searching the forums for the musician's name and a couple of other things, I didn't see evidence of discussion of it, though I'm guessing it's been discussed here or…Continue
"sk8eycat:Thanks for spelling this out from your point of view. Since I didn't have the experience of having been invested (or pushed to invest) in the Jesus myth, it didn't fully process with me that in a sense, there's at least…"
"interesting topic, kind of paradoxical for me in some ways. I've never invested anything at all in anything having to do with Jesus (raised Jewish, not that observant, eventually just kind of firmed up, I don't believe in any sort of…"
"A pet peeve of mine has long been that following too closely is generally not prosecuted. There is very little lower, in my view, in the area of driving, then someone who disrespects others and follows too closely. If following too…"

"Being Jewish is a culture as well as a religion....Some things are ok to express the culture, but I agree wearing a star of David is more of a religious symbol.....A mezuzah on the door post of your home is…"
"Jlaz........It is funny that you mention the mezuzah on the door.......I put one on my door when I moved into my new home in 1992......Back then I was a practicing Jew and thought nothing of it.......A lot has changed for me since…"
"Never been one for symbols. To be honest, this strikes me as wearing an atheist pendant on a necklace to replace a Star of David, a crucifix, or something similar. Not trying to be critical, or an asshole, but what's the point? Why engage in an…"
