For the sake of confusion and arguement; I was raised Jewish. The nose is a dead giveaway. So, the question came up recently... "Are you Jewish?"
The question came up from someone who's known me a while who heard me talking about ordinations and mass and bishops and foo.
I got thinking... "What makes someone Jewish?"
And after 3 or 4 attempts to continue this line of thought and having deleted several paragraphs... I figure I'll just leave this post there.
