    Words, just words

    From reader Joseph:

    Tolerance and respect are only workable if Jews consider themselves the equivalent of fish meal.

    Taken in Teaneck, NJ, a town with a large Orthodox Jewish population.

    I am a Catholic who has spent a significant amount of time in a synagogue, and I have discovered that Jesus Christ won all his arguments with the Pharisees. Of course, if you read his words and compare them to the Torah and his commentary, you will find that he had a classical rabbinic education for the time. I find it cheering that contemporary Jews have embraced the substance of Jesus’ teachings heart and soul.

    Their love of twisty arguments and their history of government by a religious elite appointed by God tends to lead them into invalid assumptions, not about their duty to their neighbors, but about how to fulfil their duty to their neighbors.

    Jews are not fish food, and “progressive” Jews can be educated on the subject of economics, provided you recognize that the subject of the conversation must shift from “what is our duty” to “how do we fulfill our duty in an effective manner.”

    They keep saying those words. I don’t think they mean what they think they mean…

    i used to think such bumper stickers were wishes or suggestions.

    in talking to the owners, the bumper stickers are more like commands.
