comment Should women kiss the Torah with their hand or with a prayer book?
How do you know neither is preferred just because both are permitted?

comment Is is wrong to be racist?
@Nafkamina I don't see how it shows that. It shows that the Torah mandates hate of certain races independent of personalities (Amelekites) and certain personalities independent of race (heretics).

comment Too fast or no minyan?
@user3949142 Either way, I don't know why this is happening here as this doesn't have to do with the answer. If you would like to post a different answer, go ahead.

You could try. You may or may not succeed. That would not necessarily be sufficient.

If telling yourself that you got downvoted because the downvoter is evil makes you happy with a poor answer, I won't tell you otherwise.

If I could I would post an answer. If you can't why did you post an answer?

AFAICT you have no basis for that. Please provide some. (You still haven't justified excluding Kohanim from the discussion.)

@user3949142 The Shulchan Arukh though was in favor of doing so.

"They each have the same obligations" is not what we were talking about. Do they have the same IQs? The same tendencies to murder/rape? Are they equally friendly?

comment Commercial kosher slaughter
@Jake That's not what he means by Rov. He means that most animals are fine, so the meat is not treif to begin with (not that the meat gets mixed in to kosher meat and is batel).

"as well as those who deny the existence and legitimacy of G-d and his Torah." Is that group a distinct race? Why are you even mentioning it?

"Kohen/Levi isn't relevant, because I've never seen a "kohen supremacist" group, or the opposite." ???? Why does someone need to discriminate a group in order for us to discuss if such discrimination is acceptable? "G-d doesn't categorize people as 'black', 'white', 'Asian', 'latino', etc." How do you know?

@Jake I know of no halacha which limits the number of Shchitot one can do a day. Why would you think such a thing exists?

Maybe it's degrading to the Torah? (Im not saying it is or isnt, just that would seem to be the primary concern and this answer hasnt addressed it at all)
