Who would do that?  As a jew, I couldn't follow all the rules if I wanted to.  Some are physically impossible, and others are illegal.

hypocrisy.  intellectual dishonesty.  et cetera.

Loopholes, more like. Take Christianity. The New Testament idea of "grace" lets you break just about every rule in the entire Bible (except for one, the recrucifying of Christ...and how you're going to do that, I have no clue).

Fine, but I still would need to have to take a lot of baths.  Seriously, every time I sat in a chair where a mensutrating woman had sat?  That's a lot of baths.

Tell me about it.
