    Remain as one with


    Can a good soul englighten me on the bold text?

    I am rather less condolent with that Hereafter stuff than is Ray. As has averred Nat Hentoff, I come from, and remain as one with, a grand and glorious tradition of stiff-necked Jewish atheists. Ray and I have a long-standing wager on this one, which of us is on the money and which is betting on a lame pony. Sadly, the winner will never collect.

    Thanks a lot

    He is so closely allied to the ideology that he considers himself a part of it, and vice-versa. They are like one thing, one entity, one being.

    The person has a Jewish atheist background and still very much identifies that way.
