    Ashkenazi, Sephardic, Ethiopian and other strains represent the best efforts of Sages to continue the eternal teachings of Judaism down the generations.The miracle (if that what it is) is that after often centuries of isolation the teachings differ so little. Reforms and Conservatives have just cherry picked the bits of Judaism that suit them and have discarded the rest. The tragedy is that within one or two generations few who follow reform teachings will remain within the faith. What is worse, those who have innocently and with the best intentions converted to reform from other religions have been fooled into thinking that they have become Jews. Since people like yourself, Reid, have not succeeded in convincing us that your way is correct, you are now resorting to threats. Just for the record, I am not even religious, but I can tell a wooden nickel when i see one.
