Why not take the Sefardic stringencies? There are a bunch.

comment Sukkah in the Soviet Union
You gave one exception in the case of Ridiculousness which doesn't seem to apply here. So why doesn't dina demalchusa apply?

comment Is Christianity Avodah Zara?
They believe in only one thing as Godly. It is the Trinity. Jesus is not a part of God; he is God.

comment What will happen if the Ark of the Covenant is discovered today?
Except this is not really a good answer. It neglects the facts that A there is never an obligation to touch it and B that you can move it without touching it. So while your answer is true, it's largely irrelevant.

The Trinity doesn't say that Jesus is comparable to God. It says he and God are one. There's no comparing happening.

comment Do some parents hide Jewish ancestry from their children? If yes, WHY?
@Hod Only if such a criteria is possible. God can't prove something that isn't provable. You have yet to explain how God could prove the experience was a real divine revelation.

comment What is an example of a “Tavshil Shel Baser”
Ashkenazim would wait time after eating such a dish? Sounds like standard "meaty-equipment" to me.

@hod how could you be sure it was a real divine revelation?
