    Traditions

    Jews have been hated so long it's become a tradition. My great grandfather hated Jews, my grandfather hated Jews, my father hates Jews....should I hate Jews because it's tradition?

    If something is a tradition, should laws reflect it?

    *note: my family actually doesn't hate Jews, this is just for argument's sake

    EDIT: Haha, brain fart in the poll question.

    So in other words, you expect people to treat something real as equitable to something that you acknowledge to be imaginary.

    How is Jew hating imaginary? How about we consult the population of Israel, especially the Holocaust survivors to see if they agree with you that Jew hating is imaginary.

    There are days when I think you're deliberately trying to destroy your reputation.

    Your family's tradition of Jew hatred is imaginary.

    So? Merely I'm using it as an argumentative tool does not mean it that Jew hating isn't real or a tradition.

    No, of course not.. Actually, back in the first few decades of the 20th century, it was very much a tradition in this county to hate and not associate with Jews..It seems ridiculous now, but accepted at one time. It was sort of an unwritten law, especially among the higher echelan of society. Totally ridiculous.

    EDIT: Haha, brain fart in the poll question.


    Thank God....

    Jewish humor is very good and the Jews I have known were more fun than you would believe. The less talented might find that good reason to hate them, I guess.
