    Pretty sure the Shaffer doesn’t care too much about what the rabbi thinks. Most congregations that are sufficient size tend to criticize their own rabbi any ways. No one cares what the Rabbi thinks about them really. Jews love arguing, this whole drama probably wouldn't even register on anyone’s radar.

    There's a difference between arguing and being a dickhole though, and Shaffer's comments here put him firmly in dickhole territory.

    Regardless, I think people are assuming Rabbis have the same relationship to Jews as priests do to Christians. They don't, Rabbis are more learned peer than unimpeachable authority figure. Anyway, worst case. Rabbi would say to Shaffer, hey I got a weird call, apparently you were being mean online. Then they would both laugh at how ridiculous a situation it is.

    With the sudden realization on the part of Felix of "oh shit, this dude I fucked with on the Internets somehow knows exactly where I live and might have obtained all my non-public information." Perhaps after the chuckle, the rabbi, may in a sensible non-religious coach-rabbi way advise:" "You know Felix, this Marvin guy could be absolutely batshit crazy. He isn't a Jew who likes arguing. He's a member of the subhuman race of Asians. Might want to let this go".

    Funny how Felix suddenly stopped with his antics when I posted his address, and month/year of birth. If he wants to make it personal, I can certainly oblige, and even take it to the next level. I'm basically letting him know, you may see my face one day, so consider anything more you have to say as saying it to my face. Evidently, along with the unrealistic self-assessment of himself, he forgot that he can bleed when cut, just like any other human being.

    I know most Reform Jews don't take their religion seriously these days. (Think about where I live). Neither do Christians; and most Catholics I know don't give a crap about what their priest says and only attend mass on special occasions.

    Are you sure he didn't just sober up?

    That is a possibility, but I haven't seen anyone sober up that quickly, unless he has some sort of Jor-El superpower that rejuvenates his blood. He could have passed out. This what I envision: [​IMG]

    I agree that a rabbi isn't a priest, but rabbis aren't just seen as drinking buddies either. Their words do carry weight. I don't think it's necessary to contact his rabbi of course.

    LOL, of course not! That would be a colossal waste of time on my part. This was a joke. Seriously, do you guys think I'm actually stupid enough to believe that Felix might be pious? If he was pious, he'd be like @Tari and quit the Internets for the most part.

    Dude, if Felix is secretly the hedgehog, I need to seriously reevaluate where my loyalties lie in this spat.

    Maybe Felix was lonely in his FB Headphone Amplifier Butt Buddies Club, and wanted folks to know how groovy and crazy things are over there.

    What about us Truth-seeking troll-Porker holders of golden knowledge?

    or should I say 4. People who turn everything into talking about themselves?

    But hey, I'm sorry... I apologise!

    As a completely off-topic thing, I just discussed this thread with a professor of Jewish studies and we both agreed on Jewbear's menschiness and it turns out that there is a kabbalistic term for a dickhead personality circumcision. Although, sadly, the imagery is more gentle and dicks aren't really mentioned at all. Oh well!
