It's a conspiracy, I tell you. Why do you think Greeks like American democracy so much? It's so that they can hold on to their diner monopoly and rule the gastro-economy.

Just as the term Messianic Jews and Born Again Christians are modern inventions that have nothing to do with classical Judaism and with the native Christian faith, similarly, the term "liberal Jew" is another recent invention that strays far away from the original teachings of the Tanakh that're based on fanaticism, tribalism, blood sacrifices, war, infanticide, homophobia, misogyny, slavery, rape and draconian punishments like stoning to death. A true Jew, in the classical sense, is one who follows the Tanakh.

Blame them.
I agree with COR. The one thing fundamentalist Muslims seem to be good at is blowing people up.

JUDAISM VERSUS BUDDHISM:

In the near future, I shall be quoting entire verses and at times full chapters taken directly from the Tanakh to demonstrate its evil practices and the falsehood of its teachings. I will also show there exists not one original nor a single refined spiritual teaching in this barbaric manual called the Tanakh that's devoted to demon worship. Next, I shall do a comparison of the barbaric Tanakh with the sublime teachings of Buddhism by quoting from its texts.

I never understood that term anyway.
But I would grant you, as a Christian, if you are one, the right to label and dislabel as you choose the members of your religion.
As I would expect you would grant me the same right for mine. According the customs, conventions, norms, and laws of my religion, that group that Christians call "messianic Jews" are not Jews like us. Perhaps they are not Christians either - thats your call - but they are not Jews.
rabbee: does it really make any difference, if those who know who their messiah is, don't really know who their messiah really is anyway?

too many who think they know who the messiah is, don't even really know or recognize who the real messiah is. and they even complicate this more, with their deducing who are HaMosheeach.

in another of one of those, not singular He/She plural words. so you are not looking for one, but two persons as one HaMosheeach. who could easily be, messy antics at first. but The She is not here yet, so what's the point in discussing Who The She is. and hopefully her name, is not ever susan.

rabbee: well not if your on the side, of the united states. because who are the terrorist, is relative to the side you are on.

to the rebels, assad is the rebel terrorist. and to assad, the rebels are the terrorist. so in this case both sides, are each half right. with their reasoning still, all 100% wrong.

the use of violence, to end all violence, is never ending.

Hey Satanic Lunatic,

You've claimed to have studied at Caltech, Stanford and other elite universities in the US and also to have researched at a top US lab.

Can you prove for rocket propulsion - a very simple proof,

v = u ln Mo/(Mo - rt),

where,

u = constant velocity at which gas is ejected at time t,

Mo = mass of rocket with fuel at time t = 0

r =-dM/dT, constant rate at which gas is ejected

(smiles in advance)

Hey Crazed Demon-Worshipper,

What do you know about Jainism?

Are Abraham, Elijah, David, Noah and Moses fit enough to polish the shoes of Mahavira, the founder of the heterodox sect, Jainism?

LOL.

No one can be wholly objective since the objective stems from the subjective and the subjective is native to the subject (individual). So, all talk of an fully objective analysis is hogwash. One can approach a position of non-prejudice or neutrality but no one can become any of these fully.
