Also, I’m over dissing the post-denominationalists. Don’t you all have better things to do with your time than dismiss the beliefs of others? You already think you’re superior, surely the superiority of your version of the faith will manifest itself over time and the loser “smart asses” who dare to label themselves differently and worship different will be revealed for the heretics and charlatans they are.

Things I am Over
You know what I'm over? I am so over identifications with caveats. As in, "I am a Reform Jew but not one of those "non-denominational-post- congregational-wiser-than-my-elders" smart asses;" I hear it all of the time: I’m a girl, but not one of those girls. I’m an American, but not one of those Americans, or those Americans, or, heaven forbid, those Americans. There’s always a smug superiority in that phrase that has the dual purpose of simultaneously identifying ones-self as part of a group, but placing ones-self above the members of that group. Don’t worry, I’m one of the better ones. I’m Jewish, but not one of those Jews, I’m one of the good ones.
