comment What's wrong with 'Hip Hip Hooray'?
@Ariel. I do not find that proposed etymology even remotely plausible. I suppose it could be asked on Linguistics or EL&U.

comment Why is it considered respectful to capitalize G-d and its derivatives/pronouns?
Capitalising Justice and Evil is a form of personification, and is, I think, distinct from capitalising pronouns referring to God.

Phew. That run-on sentence left me quite breathless.

revised If Christianity is avodah zarah and Islam is not, why has the Christian world triumphed over the non-Christian, and why do Jews prefer to live among Christians and not Muslims?
Rewrote lazy txtspk as proper English.

comment Do Jews believe in Heaven and Hell?
Yet another subject on which Christian beliefs are widely divergent and difficult to summarise, but this is certainly the traditional belief of European Christians, both before and after the Reformation.

comment How long is the required suspension of marital intimacy after childbirth?
@msh210. Your title is misleading and incorrect. Marital separation suggests that a marriage has broken down and the couple are now living apart. And I don't understand this idea that it's perfectly fine to talk about sex as long as you don't use the actual word.

comment Do JONAH and similar organizations successfully help those with same-gender attractions?
@tealhill. I'm not aware that anyone here has said that anything is the sole determinant of sexual orientation.

comment Do JONAH and similar organizations successfully help those with same-gender attractions?
@tealhill. Have you looked for such evidence? Are you qualified to judge it? And who said it was all about genetics? Prenatal hormone levels and other factors of the womb environment may also have a role to play. "Born gay" != "it's all in the genes". That's your oversimplification. Did you look up the book I linked to above?

Atheism doesn't have a view on most things.

comment How to tactfully circumvent opposite-gender handshake
That article makes a fair point. Your religion is no excuse for sexism. But all's fair: simply refuse to shake anyone's hand, rather than treating men and women differently.

comment Is Christianity Avodah Zara?
-1 for misunderstanding the Trinity. (Not that anyone actually can understand it, since it's nonsensical, but "three beings" is a fairly basic error.)
