RE: 12 reasons why giving up Judaism has improved my life
I'm also Jewish, and think the theology and restrictions are absolutely ridiculous, and am pretty secular, aside from my one little restriction of not eating pig.

This restriction, which is grounded in nothingness, is something I keep as a connection to my community and to my upbringing, so basically for purely sentimental reasons. But despite how liberating giving up certain aspects can be, Judaism is also my family heritage, and keeping a small connection is enriching for my individuality.

In some ways, being a part of something (cultural not religious) can be nice. Unless you're totally libertarian and believe that total freedom will make you happier. If that's the case, please stay away from society Smile

Asking us to stay away from your community brings a smile to my face, A very evil smile full of terrible thoughts and plans that are all intended to achieve "Maximum Fun". I like having fun. Big Grin
