Thumbs up

You can refer to your own religion (but NOT start a religious discussion/compare beliefs/etc) like you being a Jew or Catholic or whatever. However, let's say that the user who said he was offended at you calling yourself a Jew IS Jewish as well- that's not right because he's seeing it as making fun of the religion (even though you yourself know you're kidding).

If anything just try to stay away from making bad comments about your own religion- for example, I can joke around and say I'm Mormon but once you start making fun of the belief system it's not cool since someone, even if they aren't Mormon, may get offended by it.

Good question man! Thanks for asking, I never thought about self-references in terms of religion

The guy got pissed when 2ffu said "Jew did something" in his haiku, referring to himself. I don't think he was Jewish.

This is true. I'm Jewish, and I had no problem with it. Damn political correctness...

bang political correctness in the ass. it's problems like these that render bars to no longer hold midget tossing contests without offending someone.
