guest27: Hey Luke, I saw your video on why you converted to Judaism and chose Orthodoxy. I converted to non-Orthodox Judaism myself but I am seriously considering an Orthodox conversion because it also seems like the most authentic branch to me.
guest27: How long did it take you to convert?
YourMoralLeader: two years
YourMoralLeader: you should
guest27: that would not be considered such a long time in Holland where I live
guest27: It’s really hard here ( even for Orthodox standards) because there are hardly any Jews here anymore
guest27: I’m actually strugling because I’m studying Hebrew now (University of Amsterdam) and I am trying to make up my mind wether I should become Orthodox or become a non-Orthodox rabbi which also seems interesting.
YourMoralLeader: better to be a flea on a lion than the leader of mice!
guest27: hahaha supose thats true
guest27: but it would mean I would have to go trough the whole process again and that seems realy discouraging
YourMoralLeader: yeah, why not move to israel?
guest27: I’ve been thinking about it and it’s probably a good idea just a realy big step, leaving everything behind.
guest27: But like Dennis Prager and Joseph Telushkin say ‘Just like a Norwegian can live the most authentic Norwegian life in Norway a Jew can live the most authentic Jewish life in Israel.’
BlackHatBennie: Do you own a black hat?
YourMoralLeader: how old are you 27? how much do you love holland?
BlackHatBennie: It would be a good look for you. A nice modern orthodox black hat
YourMoralLeader: Thank you, maybe I will
BlackHatBennie: And dark sun glasses.
BlackHatBennie: Like the Blues Brothers.
BlackHatBennie: YML has had NUMEROUS opportunities to make the necessary sacrifice for his team, but has declined.
BlackHatBennie: Instead, he hordes his semen to himself, content to see it wash down the drain of life, when it might otherwise be used to inseminate Jewish women to make Jewish babies.
BlackHatBennie: Luke, why do you hate Jewish babies so that you bend over backwards to prevent their conception?
guest27: that is pretty low dude
BlackHatBennie: G27, I am Luke’s conscience
BlackHatBennie: I write what he thinks, or what he will be thinking
Chaim: I thaught that was the Torah?
BlackHatBennie: There are many rooms in Luke’s house, if not his hovel
BlackHatBennie: There is one room for Torah, another for Christian music, one for his weird non-Jewish diet, one for Jewesses (sees little action), one for gentiles, one for porn, one for bloggers, one for writers.
BlackHatBennie: I oversee all of them.
BlackHatBennie: In my black hat.
YourMoralLeader: lifelong vegie
guest30: that is why you do not have the strength to have the american gangster sex
guest30: you must start eating meat to have the energy for hoisting the women
BlackHatBennie: Norman Mailer: ate meat, married 8 times, had lots of kids, successful writer. Luke Ford: blogger and no to all the rest
BlackHatBennie: Wouldn’t it be something if Luke led his entire flock to make aliyah to Israel?
BlackHatBennie: They could move to the Negev
BlackHatBennie: And establish a compound
