    "....than Talmudic laws which view non-Jews as animals and children of a lesser God." To Jews who even know what the Shulhan Aruch is, there are no "lesser Gods". God is one unified indivisible undefinable reality. We are all equal children of a single G-d. Regardless of what fragments you can scrounge up from hundreds of volumes of Jewish teachings, the overwhelming percentage of lessons and advice demand consideration, respect, and fair treatment of all humans in equal measures. Equally absurd is your repeated refrain that non-Jews are considered animals by religious Jews. Any Jew who believes this is racist. Any Jew who thinks that Judiasm actually teaches this is ignorant of his/her own religious teachings. Any non-Jew who believes this hasn't taken the time or effort to engage in serious study. Those in the last category would seem less foolish if they didn't blindly criticize the very things they know so little about.
