JB commented the following in another thread and I thought of opening this challenge:

Quote:
I think that, quite often, the issue has more to do with the mode of delivery rather than the message. No one likes to spoken down to or to be treated as inferior by someone with a sanctimonious, "holier-than-thou" attitude.

If the goal really is to help people find a closer connection to God, then some tact and diplomacy would go a whole lot farther.
I challenge anybody to find a posting of mine that is tactless, undiplomatic, or one with a holier-than-thou attitude. The posting may not be taken out of context or disconnected from the comment to which it is responding.

Please stick to the original topic (thanks Pruzh for the correction) and post only my comments, not your opinions about them. By clicking on my handle, you can access the list of postings.

fyi

OT to everyone outside of Judaism is Old Testament. OP is the form used for the Original Post (#1) and not Original Topic (or Off Topic).

Since most were deleted MOD CUT and your rules set too many constraints, I removed the constraints so here you go:

This "cult group" is just doing what Jews are meant to be doing, following the Torah, that is. The same laws that apply to them, apply to you. Sadly for you, one or more of your ancestors was remiss in passing along the traditions, obligations, and beauty of Judaism and of feeling privileged to have been chosen to bring to the world its moral code.

Hardly, if any at all. OTD are free-for-alls who just want to immerse themselves in a fun life.
