A great question from the Editrix

The Editrix does point out that I place American egalitarianism high amongst my values and yet do spend much time with my Hindu relatives. I really never placed a high priority on religion. For me it was always a matter of keeping peace in the home
as opposed to something heartfelt. The reality is many people are like this albeit less honest about it. There are those who feel the pull of theology in their heart and I respect such people. In general people like AOW, TMW, Z, Junglemom and Rav Roov
are examples to be emulated.

I love my West Indian family, but am clear that while I respect their religious holidays and rules I am not bound by them. I explained to my daughter, I do eat beef but never at home. Nor do I eat it when I am around them. This is funny because the Guyanese have parties where some eat beef and a few do not eat alcohol. The Guyanese deal with this subject well, be yourself. I do not eat beef because my daughter will grab things from my plate and it would create problems. In general I prefer poultry anyhow with rare moments of a Romanian cut steak once or twice a year. I did well at the Federal Law Enforcent Training Center where Chicken is served all year and there is only steak on Fridays.

Interestingly, I have zero problem with Hindu vegetarians because they are cool about it. People who have religious diets usually grasp that others do not share their quirks. Nonreligious vegetarians or vegans are self righteous preachy people that are usually jerks. If that is your quirk ok now can you zip it and leave me in peace.

My love of country and Americanism is demonstrated by the way I lead my life. I show respect for store clerks, doctors and so forth. We celebrate American holidays together in a traditional sense without Commie spin. The subject of Communism and socialism has come up in passing. The subject of the Old Testament was brought up by
my step daughter. I explained the Exodus as the story of my people that has inspired others and has sometimes been twisted by evil types.

Beak, while you stated a few interesting opinions with which I largely agree, you neatly shunned the caste system question. ;-)

In real life I do not pass judgement or bother with it. I respect my girlfriend's family's
religion. I explain that those traditiona are not mine.

The caste system is not American in its rigid heirarchies. I am a man of merrit. Yet if my girlfriend wishes to celebrate her
culture as such I respect the home.

My job is quite different as I lead
by example. The step daughter never went to a museum or a zoo. She never had someone to answer questions.

It is funny that elsewhere on the web Muslims have called me a Bramhin. If I were a member of a caste it would be the Kayasth or accountant caste. Who wants to be a cleric or warrior when one can be an accountant?

He answered it. We should follow fine Calvinist examples like z and AOW (and probably yourself) who believe in an elect and predestination. You know, you prove your elect by slamming the poor and Muslims and homos. He's quite clear that he admires that philosophy.

I'm not so clear that he backs some of the more vile supremacist theories found n Crown Heights but he hints at it.

You have the temperament of a Ksatriya, though, at least when it comes to your advocacy against that old Cafeteria Commissar and his friends.

Thanks Pagan

Lets see I am the leader of the Beakerkin group of sexual liberals according to Dr Yeagley who accuses
me of promoting homosexuality. I doubt Justin or Rob who stop by would ever agree with your comments
calling me a homophobe. In fact when given my vocational work in the area it is really comic.

Now onto the communist criminals comments about the poor. AOW, Z and myself know about the poor from inside. We have all worked with the poor out of a calling as opposed to your treating them like domestic animals.

Try teaching your doodlong in the inner city and see how far Marxist stupidity gets there.

Do you serve Jell-O to your Hindu relatives?

Do they know gelatin is made from the bones of cows and pigs?

Not sure how kosher you keep, but I personally believe God intended us to eat triple bacon cheeseburgers, else He wouldn't have made them taste so good.

beakerkin said...

I use the Kosher kind

beamish said...

Kosher gelatin still uses fish bones and cow skins...

Don't tell the Hindus ;)

I will switch to Pistachio pudding.

He was talking to me, Beak.

You can always use this, Beak. Only the most hardcore vegan faction will see algae as animate beings.
