    Ahuva,

    The daughter comes off very poorly in this.

    TRW,

    I can see how this would be considered a violation of trust.

    I never liked those phone calls. I’m so happy for everyone listening to the radio who thinks it’s funny, but I don’t think I’d ever trust anyone who did that to me.

    And I just want to agree with the whole anti-semetic aspect that bb mentioned…

    I’ve never heard a child be so matter-of-fact when her parents are that upset. I also didn’t get the impression that the parents were religious at all. There are plenty of non-religious parents who don’t want their daughters dating non-Jews… but I don’t believe this is a real conversation. What girl is so calm when her father threatens to pull her out of school?

    Sara,

    Nope.

    Aaron,

    It could easily be turned around. Just look at movies like Look Who Is Coming To Dinner.

    It is a common theme for society.

    RR,

    I haven’t heard my frum friend’s parents ever speak like that. Not saying that it is impossible, but…

    You are right, the daughter was kind of rotten.

    My first thought was that I’ve never heard people who are really religious swear like that! What kind of s**t is that? 😉

    My second thought was that it was a disgusting thing for Julie to do to her parents. What a rotten daughter!

    mmm, I think the added text narration/commentary is very anti – semitic.
    It’s quite funny, but I feel it is being subverted to portray Jews in a bad light.

    The Narration makes it look more Sinnister than it is.

    I bet you would get a very similar phone call if Sophia rang up her strict Catholic father and said she had met a Jewish man.

    They’ve taken a core value of being Jewish and turned it around.

    I wonder how a phone call would go to Old fashioned Catholic Parents telling them that their newly born grandson is being ‘Christened'[Brit Milah] in a Synagogue tommorrow?

    It’s a similar situation

    Then ask in Narration are all Italian Catholics this racists?

    [With no offense to Italian Catholics or any other peoples intended]
