comment Is there an aversion to having Gentiles in the synagoge and why?
The main question is "Why am I not welcomed?" You make a good point as to why user4579 should be welcomed. This strengthens the question.

comment Why are wedding invitation abbreviated b'rachos different for males and females?
If "ש"י" stands for "שיחיה" why is it not parallel to "תח"י" in that example? Is there any precedent for the line "נרו יאיר באורה זו תורה" that is not motivated by a rhyme or some other lyrical context? And @DoubleAA's basic question about the underlying meaning of נ"י.

It is definitely avoda zara for Jews. It is not avodas Hashem (which is defined by the Torah). QED

Just to be clear, you are asking whether Zoroastrianism is avoda zara FOR non-Jews, correct?
