    He's Jewish.

    Or not, say the rabbis.

    But notice the quotes from the rabbis and others about what it takes to be Jewish:

    "Technically, not having been born by blood as Jewish and not formally going into a conversion, it was purely his interpretation of having adopted Judaism as his religion," Rubenstein told The Associated Press on Tuesday.

    By blood? My oh my. Sounds a little racist to me.

    I think it is funny. This is another reminder of how shallow our society is if they just can't move on. By God we should have National Black Week so the whole word can kiss there butts and rub all the wrong doings into everyones faces, especally whitey.

    People who formally convert to Judaism are considered Jews. It's just like people who call themselves Christians, yet have never been baptized. Most Christians would not recognize them as "real" Christians. It's not necessarily a race thing.

    yeah but in this case of finger pointing religion matters to the media! Responsibility starts with self and all the hecklers need to zip it! I hear these others running their sores over what this man did and didn't do correctly and bottom line it is all about damage control.

    What I'm saying is the media and a spefic group are up in arms about the event that took place. So I'm saying religion has everything to do about it. Had it been a muslim then it would have shocked folk but nothing would have been so over blown yet this time. What I will say it Richards screwed up and opened his mouth. It is all a bunch of crap on all sides. Oneside doesn't feel it was good enough apology and the other side is looking to get the heck out of dodge as quickly as possible. Damage control, covering ones butt. Hopefully that helped.:happy2:

    Judaism is a race as well as a religion.

    I think thats the point----are there any other religions that you are automatically born into ? If you can trace you lineage back far enough you may discover you are one too. Just like that--without doing a thing !
