comment Mamzer honoring his father - why wouldn't he?
@SethJ Sorry :) The gemara doesn't deal explicitly with the hava amina for the case of mamzer son, only mamzer brother. You can check rishonim there who might suggest other ideas for mamzer son.

comment Are a father and son allowed to learn martial arts together?
I don't know for sure, but there seems to be much more resistance to allowing ones son to harm him, as in the case of a doctor. It seems the Talmud/Rambam etc. are phrasing the doctor exception as a special one, not a general instance of mechillat kavod.

Who said the prohibition of hitting is similar to the command to honor? They are seperate pesukim; one is not derived from the other.

comment Is being vegan “kosher”?
yirmi I know of no differences between the requirements of a tallis gadol or katan. As for if we paskin like the Rambam, the Magen Avraham quotes it lehalacha in OC 529:3 and he is brought by the Mishna Berura :11 and :20. See also Biur Halacha there who tries to distinguish between Mitzva and Chovah. The Aruch HaShulchan also quotes the Rambam unchallenged in OC 529:5. Obviously others may argue, but I wouldn't say it is so clear cut against the Rambam.

comment Dreaming of doing a sin
@AvrohomYitzchok I beleive, yes, generally, although there is the machloket I mentioned before about "Oneis Gamur" meaning really really oneis. See for example Ramban to BM 82b.

comment Is being vegan “kosher”?
Are you calling the Rambam not frum? Also, who said Tzitzit had to be wool (certainly for Ashkenazim they don't)? Note that tefillin and mezuzot can be produced from Nevelah, that is, an animal which died of natural causes. Can you source that busy farm conditions which are neccasary to produce the quantity of meat the market demands at the price it demands is considered tzaar baalei chayim and not necessary pain?

comment Dreaming of doing a sin
@AvrohomYitzchok Yes, but that doesn't make it a sin, or not an Oneis. (Although, see Ramban vs Tosfot about if it's really really really unintentional if that rule still applies.)

@SethJ Even any action done while sleeping is seemingly an Oneis.

comment Would a non-Jew wearing the Star of David together with a cross be offensive?
The OP it seems actually cared about what other's think, and didn't want to offend anyone. You, it seems, have no such inclination. That doesn't mean you should complain about the OP's beliefs.

how does this answer the question? Is one allowed to sin in a Maraih Nevua (prophetic vision)?

@msh210 Some don't seem to have one. That's why I think he said faint.

comment Does soda need a hechsher?
@msh210 I think he's disagreeing with the premise, ie sodas do have hechsherim. What organisation's hechsher is a faint U is beyond me.

You mean they have a complete signed edition? We have a lot of manuscripts for different parts and have found many difference, but I suppose there could always be more.
