Where's that from?


Jaroslav Pelikan, though I left out the part where he says, "And I should add that it is traditionalism that gives tradition such a bad name."

I have no problem with tradition really. However some do seem outdated or prevent assimilation.

I am very open minded. But I am also pretty traditional.

I'm just going to go with the general definition of Tradition here. I think that traditions should always be preserved and respected but they have no place in modern day society. Unless of course we're talking about Spanish traditions like Siesta and Fiesta, in which case those always have a place in modern day society.

Some traditions are relatively inert, others are beneficial, and others are harmful. Some are useful, some are useless. And all the while their value as good or bad, positive or negative, necessary or unnecessary, is subjective. For me placing a star on a tree in celebration of Christmas is an inert tradition that may be useless from an objective standpoint, but can be quite valuable from a subjective one. Meanwhile, a tradition that girls' clitorises be trimmed is, in my view, harmful, useless, and inappropriate.

It just sort of depends on the tradition and the viewer.

Christmas was quite usefull before but now it can more or less be harmful.

But most people just don't like hair and sometimes just easier to be clean and could feel better.

What, you mean promotion of consumerist materialism and violent behaviour that comes with it? That's not Christmas's fault.

I...huh? I'm not talking about shaving pubic hair. I'm talking about a tradition in many Islamic cultures to circumcise the clitoris. The clitoris. They shouldn't do that. It devastates sensitivity and is completely unnecessary.

oh damn.. okey sorry
yeah neither any gender should they remove anything and just for tradition or religion.
on a flip side some remove the outer clit to get the deeper inside out to become more senstive.

traditions are traditions if you follow them that is up too you. Are they good or bad it depends upon the person. Just like life their is good and bad times so some traditions are good and or bad. I think they help us to realize time when in the world we make ourselves busier than we need to be. They help ground us and it also creates unity in community's.
