As a Jew I wasn't upset by the OP's last paragraph. It is Christmas-time, after all! Let's also consider the background of the OP. She's a Philippina living, working, and educated in the Philippines where Catholicism is the religion of overwhelmingly all of the people there. How must she feel about the judgmental comments, after writing with difficulty, in almost perfect English, that long and well written post?
Let's not lose sight of the point of her post!
It is necessary to help thiose without the money required for it, to live healthier lives! Often we are very intolerant of other nurses who aren't in "lock" step in other ways, with most of us. I've suspected that I lost a job because of who I am, and then I'm not proud of that thought, even though I couldn't think of any other reason for that loss - and I wasn't given any other reason.
I had requested time off for a Jewish religious holiday, had obtained a nurse for to replace me. The nurse in charge who was responsible for that, was from the Phillipines. She had very little, if any experience with someone of my faith, and I'm sure her upbringing made her believe that anyone who isn't Christian, is a bad person.
Lucky for all of us who aren't Christian, that and other prejudicial beliefs/myths are the exception, and not the rule now, as evidenced by some of the responses herein. However we should be careful about bending so far over to include other beliefs in our circle of approval, that we "diss" those who exhibit naevite, because their culture hasn't changed to include respect for everyone. Some Jews, in our zeal to take pride in ourselves and our religious practises, also have offended others, which could be one reason why we are the object of prejudice sometimes.
I suspect as well, that the poster of comment #5 who confused the belief in God, with the belief in Jesus as his/her son/daughter is someone who believes that both must be held. Jews believe in God, the same one as Christians do, but exclude the possibility that Jesus could be the messiah/son of God. Jesus was a Jew, even a member of the Jewish clergy as were some of his disciples. It is the declaration of the belief that he, and not all people descend directly from God, that makes our observance of religion different. Jews also don't believe that heaven and hell exist as reward/penalty for living (or not) according to good ethical practises.
Some of us also believe in hygienic, since outmoded beliefs that having milk and dairy products on the same plates, using the same cutlery as meat is served, is wrong. So they have 2 sets of dishes and cutlery that are only for meat, or only for dairy. That could be why the jealous thought arose that all Jews are wealthy, when clearly we are not.
In order to have peace within us all for our own choice of religion, and not make individual assessments of what is good, and what is not rule how we think of others' beliefs, we all need to let others live according to their own beliefs, and be harmonious. Wars are still being fought to this day about whose religion is right. Sufficient is the belief that those who harm others intentionally, are not right. Please lay down those swords, whether in words or deeds!!
