True but wouldn't a response like this one be more productive?
Yes thatís a better response than telling him to stick to his guns which to me means no need to explore and possibly change for the good🤷‍♂️
nothings impossible- the word itself says Im possible

When you read the OP this might help understand: ...I reside in the Silicon Valley.

Better to be somewhat observant than not at all. We all know the onslaught that was coming.

That's true - as long as you don't think you're doing everything ok

I love how everyone is ignoring the main part I take issue with.
Glad to know that you weren't taking issue with anything I said, because my main point was
It is that itís ďokayĒ to not be observant  as long as you recognize that there are laws and that you are just not interested in them or it is too hard for you to follow them. The moment that you start justifying your actions and saying that youíre doing it the right way is when everything starts going downhill.
I don't think OP deserves any sugar coating after he discredited observant people by justifying that his actions don't go against the law (but he said he can appreciate them lol). I like how he says that his sefaradic background is the reason for not asking a Rabbi (says it more clearly in another post).  :o I also have yet to find any relation between Rabbinical laws and asking a Rabbi... The best part is when he says that he's proud to be Jewish and respect the traditions but yet only recognizes Oral law.

Anyways, rumor has it that this thread was started to find a shaliach for Malť. @davidrotts63, doesn't look like we're getting the job  ;D

I don't get why there's So much negative responses here after all all parties involved are non Jews, there one guy that we can rely on butul beshishim and it's not even a duvur sheyesh lo matirim, and since there's no Heker makes it even easier to be mevutal legamri, besides the point in air is a reshus binary atzmo.
