    to “shopping 613” everyone should be welcome to come daven absolutely but not to come and disturb those who did come to daven. some more misplaced liberal tripe that is more worried about pc than about torah and halacha

    to the last comment, the gemara says that more than 1 cup of wine is halachacally problematic.where the gemara talks about a widow it mentions wine for cooking. drinking is a very different issue

    thats right so long as it makes you feel good who cares about halacha/hashkofo. after all the torah was meant to be manipulated as we see fit.(anybody wonder why klal yisroel has so many issues? maybe if we sincerely strove to do what is right rather than seeking approbattions for whatever we do, things might be a little different

    kudos to the one who made the point that one has to be intent on living the way hashem wants you to and not simply going with the crowd whether it pertains to manner of speech davening dressing etc. while these issues might not be terrible, often they define who a person is

    lets be very honest. most of us want to be happy with ourselves. and since no one can prove that “his” issue is the what that has much significance the typicsl response is defensiveness. “why cant you stop talking during davening?”response its more important to be honest in business.(in other words myob) whether the response is true has no bearing on whether the first issue should be addressed. this is why we have so many problems beacause unfortunately rather than all of us trying to be better where we can we throw out the good old cliche of dont be so critical” the modern day version of political correctness that does not allow for the raising of legitimate concerns for fear that someone will be offended

    i say that if he had class he would not have commented about ush, second that if bush had made a similar remark regarding listening to liberals they would have been screaming that he was trying to repress free speech

    too often when this kind of question is posed, it means that someone is looking to demand respect and wants to find proof that they have a right to it without regard for why the person might not feel like giving it(eg. are you putting your foot down and demanding your due or are you acting like a mentcsh?) while there is an obligation to honor the parent there is also an obligation not to provoke rebelliousness.
