This is not a defense of any militaristic-nationalistic aggressor government, so those looking for such a fight, you'd be crappin' on the wrong
Besides Buddhism, the only religion I'd like to outright like is Judaism, if I could get past the whole psycho mafioso "Yahweh" creature part.
Forgetting about the malevolent (enough) ET tale, Judaism is really about the religion the people themselves have created, the true soul. There are 3
main truths I've learned about Judaism that I find VERY attractive, downright lovely, but don't know if all 3 apply to all Jews. Hopefully a Jew or
more than one will educate me further. The truths are:
1. The term "Messiah of the Jews" is a misnomer, falsehood, since Jews don't believe the Messiah to be anyone other than the Messiah, who is
completely unassociated with anything named or established by Earth humans, including and especially religions. That is, of course, if such a
superhero is ever to be real.
2. Jews don't proselytize, no knocking on your door or creating awkward moments in WalMart parking lots.
3. Most importantly, Judaism simply doesn't believe itself to be the ONLY path to Heaven or a good afterlife and/or reincarnation. (Yes, only
Orthodox Jews believe in reincarnation). What a concept! *facepalm*
And how many Jews truly believe in an afterlife Hell/Satan?
This is my formal statement of separation from all predictably Jew-hating remarks, if applicable, that are too common on this site. I don 't need
any education on Zionism versus Judaism.
