Re: Kobe Bryant, one of the greats RIP!
And what I have a problem with, is you spewing hate on someone who just died, period.
Funny I actually agree with all you said, but why can't you realize you were totally out of line, like c'mon man! not here and not now.

Spewing hate?

He articulated a thoughtful position that actually relates specifically to the here and now. He feels that the mourning (which happens when someone dies) is due specifically to Kobe's sports accomplishments. If it was someone nobody heard of, people wouldn't care. He feels that an authentic Jewish approach should incorporate said individuals principals and morality above all else, which in this case is highly flawed and detrimental.

Re: Kobe Bryant, one of the greats RIP!
Also finding it strange that people that overlook Trump's major personal character faults and accusations are unwilling  to do so even for a few days after a shocking death of someone else...

Anyway, I'm not saying the conversation can't be had, but doing it in this thread, before his body is in the ground, is simply disrespectful, regardless of what you think of him.
1) most if not all people here think Trump is a disgusting person, we just back the actions that hes taking for our country and not his personal conduct.
2) i think that specifically now at a time when everyone is mourning this “gadol” is the perfect time for people to make sure they have their priorities straight and is a basketball player really a hero in our eyes? I wouldn’t advise going in TV and saying these ideas but on a forum that is mostly yidden i think its the perfect time to have the discussion.... and especially now when the story is still fresh.
I think anyone that doesn’t think like this or cant atleast understand why some people think like this, have brains that are too stuffed with “goyish” ideas and thoughts

1. So you're willing to overlook character flaws in Trump, but not Kobe.
2. Nobody said he's a hero. Not sure why the need to insist that is the case persists.
I never said a word about kobe’s past (others have but i havent) i say even if he woulda been perfect off the court, what he has accomplished on the court should be worthless in our  eyes. Thats all im saying.

What kind of chutzpa does it take to say that something created by Gd is worthless and offers no lesson in serving Him.

According to that logic we should be sad if a terrorist is eliminated. (I am not comparing anyone to a terrorist, I am simply making a point.)

The fact that G-d creates everything for a purpose has nothing to do with man's free will. Bryant admitted to choking a woman and worse.

If so, why is everyone mourning?

Spoiler: They are not mourning over the loss of a human being. If they were, they would react the same about an unknown who was killed.

They are mourning talent. That's the reality.

From a Jewish perspective it is the exact opposite. We should not respect A more than B because of a meaningless attribute. Judaism doe not attribute greatness to someone for his ability to hit three pointers.

It goes against your grain? I can't help it.

Re: Hotel in Fort Lauderdale That's a very good question, I think there's no one here that can answer that
