There was a Zoroastrianism thread a couple of days ago asking what it meant to be Zoroastrian. Someone had written several sentences that I completely forgot to save.. It included something about gluttony and just general values. It was pretty well written. Does anyone remember what it was?
Are you talking about this?
To ride, shoot straight and speak the truth
Moderation in worldly pleasures, both celibacy and lechery, gluttony and temperance is not encouraged
Charity and love for all human beings
Industry and honest toil
Forgiveness, mercy and tolerance
Arrogance, greed, petty quarrels, wrath and jealousy are discouraged
Are they? I read somewhere they don't. That's great anyway.

Mainstream Zoroastrians accept converts.
Thing is that the more numerous offshoot called Parsis do not. The Indian king who let them stay with him made a law that they cannot spread their faith or compete with mainstream Hinduism.
Kurds, Pashtuns, and other folks convert all the time.
