    A Reform Jew that is non-observant and could still be a person of faith.  Faith refers not to adherence to any religious law, but, rather, to the belief in a higher power, whatever you call that higher power.  I believe in G-d, so I am a person of faith.  At the same time, I am also a somewhat observant Jew.  However, because Jewish is also an ethnicity, and thus there are atheist and agnostic Jews as well, I like to state that I am a Jew that practices the religion known as Judaism.

      They were all "Muslim Agenda" this AM on ME in a more than snidely report on Egypt by "Lynne Neary"

      They are one-way tone deaf and it will be their demise if they don't get more plain spoken folks like you to edit out the dripping condescension...

        And what of it? Last I checked, they have the same rights under law as the rest of us, including that freedom of assembly thing.

        Fuck me, it's a leprechaun.
