You have a curious way of talking about heritage.
What exactly do you personally consider an insult about the Sheild of faith given by the King of kings?
Ignore the the 3s and 4s all you like.

Insult my sister.
And you will find how ungentle her brothers are.

Do u understand?

That’s not nice. And you’re not speaking from a position where you could know, since you are Moderator cut: English only per TOS. It’s very unusual to see a religious Jew wear one. Any jewelry for that matter.

I'm a religious Jew, and I wear one. The vast majority of religious Jews I know also wear one, whether they are Reform, Conservative, or Orthodox.

The only group I've ever seen (as a group) not wear them is the ultra-orthodox.

I don't. I think that he just hasn't seen many orthodox Jews wearing Magen Davids. Neither have I.

I thinks just a matter of the people he interacts with does not wear them, so that is what he knows.

I have. Working for 25 years in Orthodox schools, I have seen plenty -- on kippot, on bracelets and necklaces, in designs on bags and clothing. I bought one for my wife many years ago.
