    That post is a lie. Fact. Don't backpedal now. You posted a lie and I called you out on it.
    I'm certainly not backpeddling. I just interpreted your post to say that he was running as Dem. You could have responded with; yes, he's running as an independent, instead of yelling lie!

    It's "backpedaling", not "backpeddling", and you didn't "interpret" my post - you said something that was blatantly false that I never said.

    You could have not posted that in the first place - and you can be honest about it now. But you refuse to be, obviously. Noted.

    : the religion developed among the ancient Hebrews that stresses belief in God and faithfulness to the laws of the Torah : the religion of the Jewish people

    Judaism - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary

    What is Judaism? What does it mean to be a Jew? Most people, both Jewish and gentile, would instinctively say that Judaism is a religion. And yet, there are militant atheists who insist that they are Jews! Is Judaism a race? If you were to say so, most Jews would think you were an antisemite!

    snip

    In the 1980s, the United States Supreme Court ruled that Jews are a race, at least for purposes of certain anti-discrimination laws. Their reasoning: at the time these laws were passed, people routinely spoke of the "Jewish race" or the "Italian race" as well as the "Negro race," so that is what the legislators intended to protect.

    But many Jews were deeply offended by that decision, offended by any hint that Jews could be considered a race. The idea of Jews as a race brings to mind nightmarish visions of Nazi Germany, where Jews were declared to be not just a race, but an inferior race that had to be rounded up into ghettos and exterminated like vermin.

    But setting aside the emotional issues, Jews are clearly not a race.

    You don't have to do anything and clearly you still do not get it. You introduced a moronic term "Judism" a clear indication how clueless you are on the topic. And no it was not a typo since you repeated it a number of times. Then argued that it is a religion when the issue was the simple fact that Soros was born and remains a Jew even if he does not practice Judaism.

    You ought to quit with the name calling if you continue to post such laughable postings like this....

    From Soros own website...

    Religion
    What faith is George Soros?

    He identifies himself as an atheist.

    Seriously. Is it so difficult for you to grasp simple sentences? The issue of his faith or religion is not in contention here. He is a Jew.

    No, he is an atheist. Even he says so...

    Judaism 101: Who Is a Jew?

    A Jew is any person whose mother was a Jew or any person who has gone through the formal process of conversion to Judaism.
    Who Is A Jew? | Jewish Virtual Library

    According to Jewish law, a child born to a Jewish mother or an adult who has converted to Judaism is considered a Jew; one does not have to reaffirm their Jewishness or practice any of the laws of the Torah to be Jewish.
    *Advertisement

    The halakhic definition, by which a Jew is a person born to a Jewish mother, seems to have crystallized at the end of the Second Temple period, when its final formula was set by the sages.
    ... This really is a stupid debate and your position is simply ridiculous. A Jew is somebody born to a Jewish mother. That's not me saying it, that is Jewish people, Rabbis and Jewish religious law saying so. However, before you enter the full circle of redundancy: Soros' ****ing mother was Jewish.

    Now, whether he is an observant Jew is another matter entirely. As far as rabbis, average Jews and Jewish websites are concerned, George Soros is as much a Jew as Ariel Sharon.
