I had a friend I went to yeshiva with who just recently grew payos and a beard. Its funny Bc this friend; me and my friend who moved to the Uws and is now otd used to all be best friends. We all became religious together in yeshiva. It seems like both friends went opposite ways and I’m not that close with my fried.d who grew a beard and payos. Why does yeshiva teach us to go to extremes? I try so hard to stay in the middle. I was shocked when I heard about my friend. It seems fake to me.August 19, 2012 5:17 am at 5:17 am #891978
Oh, I thought you were going to say it was the same friend. You should tell him to marry the one from the UWS.August 19, 2012 12:33 pm at 12:33 pm #891979tomim tihyeMember
All Baalei Teshuva should read “Rediscovering the Lost Self” by Rabbi Dan Tiomkin.August 19, 2012 2:06 pm at 2:06 pm #891980
Why would they marry each other of they’re both guys? Do you really think I’d be friends with either one if they were a homosexual??August 20, 2012 1:34 am at 1:34 am #891981WhiteberryMember
Unless your friends name is sara devorah, don’t sweat the beard or peyos.August 20, 2012 1:39 am at 1:39 am #891982ToiParticipant
why not?is there something wrong with that?August 20, 2012 2:28 am at 2:28 am #891983
Toi- yes there’s something wrong with being homosexual.August 20, 2012 2:39 am at 2:39 am #891984
You wouldn’t be friends with someone who has homosexual feelings? That is retarded.August 20, 2012 2:53 am at 2:53 am #891985shlishiMember
kfb said there’s something wrong with being homosexual; he did not say there’s something wrong with having homosexual feelings.
Being something entails practicing it.August 20, 2012 2:56 am at 2:56 am #891986
That may be what kfb meant. That is not what those words mean, however.August 20, 2012 3:16 am at 3:16 am #891987
I wouldn’t be friends with someone who practices these things just like I wouldn’t be friends with someone who practices beastiality or incest. It’s a perverted life style even though nowadays many of us are afraid to admit that.August 20, 2012 10:17 pm at 10:17 pm #891988RebRYMember
well said KFB.August 21, 2012 3:12 am at 3:12 am #891989
Thank you RebRy. It bothers me so much that supposed frum people on this site support what G-d calls an abomination to society!
