    Hedy Lamarr was an Austrian American Jewish Catholic. True. Not a mixture either. Jewish parents. Raised a Catholic. An American citizen who was born and buried in Austria.

    BTW did I ever tell you I have Catholic, Protestant and Muslim relatives? Also relatives who are "secular humanist Jews". These are Jews who practice all the customs and traditions of Judaism, including services with liturgy etc, but don't believe in God. They even have their own rabbis and stuff. I saw these relos on Compass one night.

    sheesh.

    "Secular humanist Jews" sounds a bit like drinking low alcohol grog Geoff - you get to participate without any of the headaches.

    Hedi: a Austrian American Jewish Catholic - that would make her a bitza, and when she went to the pub she'd be a bar-bitza.
