comment Not allowing one's tzitzis to show in a cemetary according to the Rambam
@Yehoshua, I think the idea that the idea that things that are lumped in the same Halacha share the same reason is something that requires support, not just assertion.

I don't know, it would be the first day it was expected to fall but didn't either way.

@MonicaCellio, even if Alan comes back and confirms this question, it may be a duplicate of this one

comment Not allowing one's tzitzis to show in a cemetary according to the Rambam
@mevaqesh, although his explanation of לועג לרש is certainly reasonable (no one I know thinks Chalah is embarrassed either), the טומאת המקום explanation seems pulled out of thin air, and I wonder what motivates it. לועג לרש seems available.

comment On Burial Under the Altar
@mevaqesh, The desirability to be buried in Eretz Yisroel is not a Halacha? Anyway, it was a reference to the introduction to the Rambam וראיתי לחלק חיבור זה הלכות הלכות בכל עניין ועניין, ואחלק ההלכות לפרקים שבאותו עניין; וכל פרק ופרק אחלק אותו להלכות קטנות, כדי שיהיו סדורין על פה

comment Is it permitted for a Ben-Noach be an atheist?
@Fred, those examples would be more compelling if they were after מתן תורה. Even Bil'am is kind of an exception, given his level of prophecy, even if he lived during Mattan Torah. Either way, it doesn't seem that the Rambam agrees with the Rashi you cite.
