Today is the first time I've seen this, but I agree with the sentiment
Although it's true that Eric isn't Jewish, his commitment to his religion is admirable. It was characters like that that saved many Jews during WWII. While I never saw this before, it's a great lesson in sticking to your ideals. I agree with the sentiment completely. Nothing is worth selling yourself short and betraying your beliefs, even if others think less of you for it.

While I can appreciate the idea of keeping Sabbath, this is a very flawed message. Eric observed Sunday, the first day of the week as "sabbath". God set aprt the SEVENTH day as a day of rest, from the very beginning. It is not up to man to decide which day is the Sabbath. He, alone, decides which day is to be set apart, to be holy. We do keep to keep His Shabbat, and not the one of man's making.

A test of our commitment
If we give up our commitments for the sake of money, fame, etc. the principles behind our commitments are weak or useless.

A young ram, indeed
Pride is pride. Its bitter water.
i think the filmmaker/scriptwriter did a wonderful job of portraying a double entendre here: a resurregent undertow of Scottish nat'l pride & the english mens' stiff upper lips.

speaks for itself
The clip speaks for itself. How convenient it would be if dilemmas always had a solution. It took courage to stand his ground.
