It makes me glad I'm a goy. My Jewish friends were all born Jewish so they can be religious or atheist, eat pork or not, observe shabbat or not, do whatever they like and the rabbis can't touch them. I'm surprised Jews let rabbis like thes decide the Who's a Jew debate? A bit humilating really. They should dump the rabbis and deal with God direct. Cut out the middle men.
