this is what I do HOWEVER, I find it intresting that its considered rude to basically be transparent. The reason I say that is because the host is giving people a command that in of itself is rude so my reaction should be submit or transparent but in no way confront rudeness...hmmm

Best Answer

this is normal however if you think about it here is what is happening
the host is giving a command to everyone there. This command is not considered rude which is why everyone should either submit or be transparent. Its is considered rude to challenge the command.

I have invited Jews to my children's Catholic baptisms- I do not expect them to participate in Catholic rituals and there is the priest making all manner of demands; kneeling and the Profession of Faith being probably the most oppositional. On the other hand, we’ve gone to Bat Mitzvahs and my men folk wear the yarmulke out of respect, not because they will be getting circumcised soon. My Cub Scout troop uses the “moment of silence”. I think if we all stepped back and viewed these rituals as simply traditions of the celebrants and not indoctrinations of the non –practicing guests, they would seem as less of an affront.
