I am part of a living tradition that extends back over more than 2000yrs. Within that tradition there is the greatest sensitivity shown to the convert. Love and care for the convert is mentioned 36 times in the Torah. There is a tractate of the talmud devoted to it. The rabbis were amazingly sensitive to the background and status of the convert. For Jews such as TT this is crap. For him apparantly the ethical dimension of Judaism, the "light unto the gentiles" is also just so much "crap". There is certainly an ethnic component to being Jewish and the convert does not have the background that a born Jew has. This is true and that is one reason why the rabbis and Judaism has shown such senstivity to converts while TT disparages them and turns his born Jewishness into nothing more than a tribal cult. Justice, justice, thu shalt pursue. But to TT that too is probably just theology and philosophical crap.
