All About Mormons

I was watching today the South Park in which a Mormon family moves into the neighborhood. I thought it was a riot. And interestingly enough, it's not as anti-Mormon as you might expect coming from South Park. It makes being a Mormon so much fun that even I would consider converting (Not). It's called All About Mormons.

I am a Maskil

I like that GH is trying to revive the term maskil. I think the name fits me well. I can't think of calling myself Reform, Conservative or Reconstructionist (which sounds like back surgery, as GH also pointed out,) but maskil sounds right. You don't need to belong to any shul or organization to be a maskil (although, you could if you want to.) All you need is a passion for spirituality and truth and to have respect for the path that our spiritual fathers set.
