comment Taking a concubine (pilegesh) today
@SAH The shtar in 'kesev, shtar, biah' is not the ketubah, but a document which states: Behold Sara is betrothed to Avram according to the laws of Moshe and Yisrael. The ketubah is a seperate, rabbinically-enacted document obligating the husband beyond Torah requirements for the sake of the wife.

comment How should we respond to objectionable content in a public forum?
@ArielK, I agree with you that there are circumstances that call for public rebuke. Still, in your link to the Mishneh Torah the Rambam specifies in halacha 12 that publicly rebuking and embarrassing a sinner (under particular conditions) is only after attempting to correct him in private.

comment Anyone who says these people sinned is mistaken. For real?
You're right - I wrote that a bit muddled. What I mean is that even when we accept the allegorical explanation, such as Reuven moved his father's bed rather than slept with his stepmom, he still definitely sinned. So the question remains, why am I mistaken to say so?

comment Opening an umbrella indoors
Then would it be forbidden to give credence to this kind of superstition, say by closing an umbrella to escape the 'bad luck'?
