It is interesting how parsing a hyphen can mean so much.<quoted text>
Just look at the Protestants and the Catholic Irish killing each other, blowing one another up, in Northern Ireland. Maybe not as much recently but quite a history of violence. Not homogenous by any means.
Definitely not ethnoreligious but the hyphenated Irish-Catholic is well known in our culture, along with Italian-Catholic and a few others. Strong associations but not the same as being Jewish.
I had a feeling where Huggy was going but thought I'd play along with him. He seems to hear what he wants to hear on this subject.
When I was a kid I remember going to a discussion in my synagogue where they wanted us to discuss whether we saw ourselves as Jewish Americans or American Jews. The first term connotes religion while the second term connotes ethnicity (I think?)
