    Sometimes I-ve a suspect

    Actually, looking at your posts you don't even try to hide it. Go join Atomwaffen Division you scrub, they could use a couple of drooling flunkies.

    Well that explains the White Nationalist avatar, now doesn't it?

    Opinions on drinking?

    Alcohol is great. I generally prefer mine in a shotglass or a bottle, whatever's easiest to carry without falling over.

    Your Translation?

    What translation of the Bible do you use? I used to use the Jewish Publication Society's Jewish Study Bible; now I use the Messianic Tree of Life Version which includes the Brit Chadasha (NT). I just got it so I have no real opinion yet, but it is a beautiful book. Faux leather.

    Star Wars: The Bored Awakens

    I like how this thread is the last little flame of life and community on CTF xD Congrats btw Becky and Ashley. #AdultingForReal Meanwhile, I haven recently been accepted into the graduate degree program of a little "alternative" interfaith seminary; and am working on my thesis requirement for an MA in Hebrew Letters. Exciting stuff.

    Hello!

    Hi! You may want to try the Catholic Answers Forum instead; seeing as CTF is a barren, lifeless wasteland. Kinda unfortunate really; esp. since we used to have a robust little contingent of Catholics here, but c'est la vie.

    MCR And Why They're Considered "Evil"

    "I don't know if anyone here has even heard about MCR." We're Christians, not desert nomads.

    Beating your children

    I was browsing the forum TeenReply, which occasionally spams us, and came across a thread wherein a teenager described being punched in the eye and kicked in the stomach by his father; as the teen in question had been using his father's computer without permission. One can imagine my horror and disgust when one of the members of that forum defended the father's actions and said that the kid deserved it; that parents have the right to beat their children. So, I ask my fellow CTFers, what do you think? Yea or nay on beating children?

    Right to Refuse Service

    For any reason? No. For religious reasons? Yes.

    It's wrong for a women to cut hair hair

    I think something as simple as haircuts can, in fact, be solely about personal preference.

    Is this normal or weird?

    Did you really register here just to post a thinly-veiled account of foot fetishism?

    No. But thanks for playing.

    Transsexuality

    Tricky issue for me. There's nothing religiously wrong with transsexuals from a liberal Jewish perspective. In fact just recently (well, about a year ago) the Union for Reform Judaism passed A Resolution on the Rights of Transgender and Gender Non-Conforming People, which reaffirms a Reform commitment to inclusion of transpeople. Similarly, the Bnei Yisroel Union for Progressive Judaism, to which I belong, states in the document B'tzelem Elohim - Articulating a Vision for Progressive Judaism that Progressive Jews "are committed fundamentally to respecting and protecting the innate dignity which man possesses;" which would include not discriminating against transpeople. So while there should be nothing wrong with transsexualism from my perspective, I still wrestle with a deep discomfort with it. I am, in my heart of hearts, a gender essentialist and question whether transpeople might not better be served by counseling and therapy, rather than immediately supporting them in whatever gender they choose to be. At the same time, I am dating a transboy who wants to get married; and I more or less "tolerate" her identity as a boy, although to others I refer to her as a girl. It's a fine line, and one which occasionally blurs.

    What foreign religion interests you most?

    Christianity. On the other hand, the interest in Judaism here is gratifying. Or, it would be if this thread wasn't well over a year old.

    Controversial topic - a practice in nonjudgmentalism

    Seeing as how I'm a big believer in recreational use, I wholeheartedly support medical marijuana as well.
