Yaakov, do you want to know what is christianesque? The idea that God has someone to go between God and mankind. If someone does something against another human, thats between people, but of someone does something that God feels someone did something serious against him, but is not against another human, then God is a big boy that can take care of himself and does not need Yaakov Watkins and the rest of the haradim thinking that they are the crusaders taking on Saladin when going after El Al for the terrible crime of flying passengers. That is one aspect of a modern mentality as opposed to a fundamentalist mentality. You asked about what makes one a fundamentalist.

Thanks for letting us know that you are not a religious totalitarian, but also that you are totally religious in trying to strongarm others to do the religion your way, or else if it is an airline, you wont use them. Hey, if you want to go on a completely gentile airline where people will look at you weird for the way you dress different, pray different, and wear payuses on your head different, and that perhaps can have an antisemite here and there as opposed to going on an airline where people will at least be able to understand where you are coming from, despite disagreements, .... BE MY GUEST.

I am not sure how prenuptual agreements are relevant to this. Perhaps you thought that when I wrote all that stuff about shoving an overly-puritan society down everyones throats- you thought that I was trying to say that Judaism was going to be oppressive to women the way other people in Israel's vincinity are sometimes? Not really, but in a religious society, television would be severely limited and in that sense it would be more puritanical, and there are other senses too.
