No matter what your religion is there is always different observant levels. The holier than thou types are going to mock you six ways to Sunday. Stick to yours guns as these individuals don't matter!!!
I believe @ChaimMoskowitz  wasnít necessarily approving of your level of Shabbat obvservance donít be confused there..you wonít find him on a flight with you on Shabbat anytime soon.
Also I like how he considered Shabbat observers as Ďholier than thouí.. itís more like Ďmore religious than thouí.
But yes there are always different observant levels .
nothings impossible- the word itself says Im possible

This isn't Christianity.
As @mileagejunkie said, you can go do what you want, but don't call that the proper Jewish way. Don't do the wrong thing and tell yourself it's right. Comparable to legal laws, the biggest crooks are always the ones who start off with small thing and brush them off as OK for whatever reason they decide.

I wasn't approving of anything. Is their anyone here that follows their religion 100%? Maybe spend your time on that instead on others observance.

I guess this is one of those conservative "tolerant" views?

ChaimMoskowitz is actually non Jewish and is catholic, so I don't think think he'll have a problem with flying on Shabbos.

Of course it's tolerant, my family dedicated their lives for people who weren't religious, and I mean intermarriage, cellphones ringing on yom kippur etc. But you can't deny the law. The comparison with legal law is on point.

Ditto.

But thumbs up for coming clean like this.
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

I love how everyone is ignoring the main part I take issue with.

The op deliberately started this discussion. It's not like people came along and started criticizing his level of observance for no reason

True but wouldn't a response like this one be more productive?
If you are proud to be Jewish and love our traditions, then try to keep Shabbos and major/minor holidays according to halacha. Many people went down on the road you are, came to a crossroad and if they took the turn that you are justifying their children and/or grandchildren became non-Jewish. You will not be able to transmit your Jewish pride and love without learning and practicing Jewish tradition as it was practiced for thousands of years by your ancestors.

More productive if the point of this thread was to achieve positive results

i would imagine that no matter the response it wouldnt have been productive.
May you slide down the banister of happiness & get many splinters of success up your career.

If that is the case then no response would be better unless you are celebrating PC Friday.  :)
