If they turn out to be a bad apple.  :)
No.
I think people consider themselves "raised Jewish" culturally, so I would answer your question, no it's not the same.

That's interesting. Would you being a Jew be based on your culture?

No, but some people erroneously think so.

+1, the entire idea that Jews have a culture is a misnomer :D

We have collective historical and religious traditions, and the two are inextricably bound.

Ironically, the Jews who think we have a culture often step around the aforementioned traditions we have.

This is why I am confused. If being a Jew is based on Religion then being raised Jewish wouldn't be a Religious upbringing?

It is. What I said is that some people consider themselves to have been raised Jewish based on culture, but I think they're wrong.

So then it is the same as being raised Catholic? You are being raised based on Religious values.

Huh? They wrote off billions in "assets".. - that's a fact.

They didn't "disappear" they just didn't exist.

Aren't there a lot of people who call themselves Catholic, but do not follow (or believe in) Catholic doctrine?

I know politicians are not very representative of the general population, but just based on what some politicians say about themselves, that seems to be the case.

Do not follow/adhere to I would say yes. If you don't believe in the doctrine how can you be Catholic?

That is what I always wondered. Is there no such thing as a " Cultural Catholic"?
