rosends got it right.
But I'll go through the quotes anyhow.
A. Non-Jews aren't humans. Keritot 6b.
There are a handful of specific technical laws in the Bible that pertain to "an adam" which the Talmud interprets as "Jews only"; for a non-Jew we are more lenient. The idea simply is that most of the Torah's laws were intended for a Jewish audience, so ...
These attacks are usually amalgamations of the following:
Pure invention -- some of the books listed don't exist or the quotes are fabrications
Mistranslations or selective quoting
Out of context quotes (statements made in the course of a protracted legal argument presented as definitive statements of belief or statements made to make a legal point being ...
A Rabbi is an expert in his field and has studied for many years. If one needed medical advice, G-d forbid, they would never rely on "crowd-sourced" opinions of a question and answer website, but would go to a trained doctor with practical experience. If this is so with regards physical healing, how much more so when dealing with the health of one's souls.
It's important to highlight that Christianity StackExchange has a very different atmosphere to Mi Yodeya. Christianity SE is very much true to its mission of being a Q&A site about Christianity. It is not a Christian site. And that post on meta isn't just a claim. It's lived up to throughout the site. In fact, it was recently brought up again in ...

I recently wrote an article for Torah Musings that focuses on a part of the answer that hasn't been focused on yet. "What does Mesorah Mean?" http://www.torahmusings.com/2015/08/what-does-masorah-mean . To quote just enough to capture the thesis, although it omits much of the argument and R JB Soloveitchik's poetry:
We speak of someone “having a masorah”...
While itself not essential, the sidebar has a lot of good links. I will copy/paste two sections here, but I am a bit too lazy to format it. (Looking at the preview, it formats just fine!)

Emeritus Chief Rabbi Jonathan H. Sacks, "In Praise of Sefaria":
"Sefaria is one of my favorite things in the entire contemporary Jewish world. It is taking cutting-edge technology and doing something very spiritual by it. What it is doing is opening up the rich treasury of our texts - we the people of the book, the people that never stopped writing and ...
The requirement of the megillah reading is to hear every word (Shulchan Aruch O"C 690:3), including Haman's name.
There is a minhag to make noise "as if" you're drowning out Haman's name (Ram"a O"C 690:17), but this is always done after saying Haman (Mishnah Berurah 690:60). Sometimes, when people get too into it and start making noise early, the person ...
Fine yourself 50 dollars (to be paid to tzedaka) for each time you view pornography, enforced with a neder (vow), and with a maximum of 100 dollars per day.
Make a condition that the neder be valid only if you remember it beforehand and that it is valid for one or two weeks only. (You can renew it after.)
You'll squash the habit in no time.
However, this ...
Such a conversion would not be accepted in the Conservative movement. A site offering an online-only Conservative conversion is at best extremely misguided, and possibly a scam.
For starters, Conservative Judaism would not accept a "conversion" that did not include mikvah and (for men) circumcision. This doesn't even come up in the law committee responsa ...
JPal should solve this issue.

A Rabbi has a broader veiw of halachah. The one answering may know a certain subject very thoroughly but misses a important point from a different subject which is very relevant. A Rabbi is certified to answer all sorts of questions and will be able to answer a lot more accurately.
A Rabbi learns how to apply what he learns so that even if someone quotes all ...
The Talmud (Yoma 4b) relates:
ויקרא אל משה וידבר למה הקדים קריאה לדיבור? לימדה תורה דרך ארץ, שלא יאמר אדם דבר לחבירו אלא אם כן קורהו. מסייע ליה לרבי חנינא, דאמר רבי חנינא: לא יאמר אדם דבר לחבירו אלא אם כן קורהו. לאמר אמר רבי (מוסיא בר בריה דרבי מסיא משמיה דרבי מוסיא) +מסורת הש"ס: [מנסיא]+ רבה: מניין לאומר דבר לחבירו שהוא בבל יאמר, עד שיאמר לו לך אמור - ...
Chovos Halevavos - #7 - Shaar Teshuva ch.10
But for the sins towards G-d and man, it will be difficult to repent
for several reasons: He may not be able to find the person he
oppressed, or the person died or moved far away...
Perhaps the oppressed will not forgive him for what he oppressed him
or hurt him physically, or spoke badly of ...
YUTorah.org has free, streaming Torah reading recordings by R' Jeremy Weider. He enunciates and intones extremely clearly. He performs the two features you're looking for:
The masa'ot start at 06:00 in his Laining for Matot Mas`ei Part 4.
35:5, with the unusual trop, starts at 02:07 in his Laining for Matot Mas`ei Part 6.
The Encyclopedia Judaica, first published in 1971-1972, and updated as recently as 2007, is a bit more recent than Jewish Encyclopedia. While it isn't available online, many of its articles are available from Jewish Virtual Library (most of these articles have "Source: Encyclopaedia Judaica" at the bottom, but some articles from Encyclopedia Judaica are ...
Quantified Cantillation is what you need. It is designed to search the Torah for specific sequences of trop.
I can tell using it that there is one zarka-munach-zarka in Breishit 42:21 and one in Shmot 12:29, and a zarka-munach-munach-zarka in Vayikra 17:5.
Torah only, not the rest of Tanach
No searching backwards
It is open source, so you are ...
I have found that Daf Yomi Calendar has the calendar for cycles 11 - 15.
This site does not have any earlier cycles.
I have found D.A.F.'s Talmud Tools which allows you to search back by Daf, Hebrew date, or English Date. The first cycle shown is Brachos 2 which started Sep 6, 1923, Thu, 25 Elul 5683 and ended Sep 11, 1923, Tue, 1 Tishrei 5684.

Here's a list of Jewish organizations I donate online to with some regularity. I spend about 10 minutes checking out each one for reliability and quality and usefulness of work before giving a donation; feel free to do more.
With some exceptions, this list focuses on donations to the Jewish

Marry a wife
Pele Yoetz (here) says it helps with sin
Seifer Hachinuch (mitzva 582.2) explains that the reason of the Mitvzah that after the first year of marriage you need to be happy with your wife is that you should (get use to her, since you like what you are use to and) and to make **all other woman disgusting for you ** (I guess this will include ...
Here's a shiur talking exactly about your question (haven't listened to it) I would define texting and using social media sites to be basically the same thing.

The primary point of your question is the subject of contemporary discussion, and is hard to offer a "conclusion." At the asifa referred to in the comment on your question, it was accepted by many Rabbanim that it would be included in "ikah darka acharina," and it is difficult to find a good reason to differentiate it from that.
Regarding your final ...
http://www.yutorah.org/ has halacha shiurim on a huge range of topics, both in depth and very practical. Just click on the "halacha" tab. Highly recommended.
Also http://www.kolhaloshon.com/, from the more yeshivish side of things, with lots of shiurim from R' Osher Arieli and other Ram"im in the MIr Yeshiva.
