Yes.
Being that I was never at Shallots, and even if I was there I wouldn't be likely to buy steak there, we need to page @Dan to chime in, as one of our resident experts on this, who actually might have an opinion about buying steak at Shallots, which I don't.
Fine, to buy herring and mashke.

If todays fast would fall on Saturday would you just move it to another day like the Catholics do for some of their fasts?
I just found a new supply of forks!

Yes. The previous Thursday.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

How does wanting a lot of money attribute power to it?

To quote the Chovos Halevavos
 ויש יתרון להעובד כוכבים על החנף בארבעה דברים. אחד מהם כי העובד כוכבים בזמן שאין חזון איננו מוזהר ע"י נביא שיברר אצלו הפסד מחשבתו באותות ובמופתים אבל המחניף בתורת האלהים יש עליו טענה במה שקבל מן המצות בעבודת האלהים וההזהרה מעבודת זולתו. והשני כי העובד כוכבים עובד מי שאינו ממרה את האלהים אבל המחניף בתורת האלהים עובד מי שממרה את האלהים . והשלישי כי העובד כוכבים הוא עובד דבר אחד בלבד והחנף אין תכלית לנעבדיו

Some who has greed for money etc. will almost always fall into the above category.

Taking a break. In the meantime:

I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Since you mentioned that can I get your take on Henotheism?

Exactly!!!
But there are reasons for all of it, its not just because someone thought it would be more convenient.

We can justify anything and do it all the time.

what about it?
I am going to assume you worship one G-d.  ;)
Are you open to the existence or possible existence of other deities?
Is it possible Jews and Catholics pray to the same G-d?
