comment What if someone accidentally gave an Aliya to a non-Jew?
would this person's brocha be any worse than that of a mechallel Shabbos beFarhesia getting an aliya? I don't know. But we say that a Mechalel Shabbos is like a non-Jew, not that a non-Jew is like a Mechalel Shabbos

comment What if someone accidentally gave an Aliya to a non-Jew?
@NoachmiFrankfurt that's because according to technical Halacha, a non-religious Jew shouldn't be getting an Aliya. On the other hand, it's unlikely a religious Jew would discover half an hour after his aliya that he's Jewish

comment Is one allowed to be Machmir against a psak?
I found the Piskei Teshuva (10) in here where he says that to be Machmir on something the Amoraim were not is Apikorsus. Yet, Lechora, why can't we just say that I'm "hedging my bets" so to say, as a Sanhedrin could re-open any case any time and undo any previous legislation.

comment Is it forbidden to teach Torah to non-Jews on Mi Yodeya?
You're teaching anyone who comes to this website. You can ask the same question about people writing seforim (especially in non-Jewish languages, such as the Rambam)
