Crazy Rabbis in New Jersey

Timothy Kincaid

July 20th, 2010

A few Orthodox rabbis participated in the National Organization for Marriage’s rally in New Jersey. And they had some rather peculiar points to make.

One sign reads:

G-D’S COMMANDS ARE JUST, FAIR
AND POSSIBLE TO COMPLY WITH:
Sodomy causes others to sin, diseases and misbehavior.
The resulting high costs are crippling the economy.
Every human being is obligated to control his physical desire.
RATHER HEAL YOURSELVES & ENJOY LIFE A LOT BETTER!

Ah, wackadoodlery. The traditional circus song flitted through my head as I tried to figure out how sodomy causes others to sin or how it’s crippling the economy.

The other sign fails the tiny print rule but seems to be making the same argument that we hear from the “America is a Christian Nation” crowd.

p.s. Hey, kid, knock of that misbehavior.

They are?”

Looks like those Crazy Rabbis have alot of work to do in G-d’s name ahead of them.

I’m pretty sure that if all men looked like these creeps, male homosexuality would come to a screeching halt overnight.

Maybe that should be their new strategy!

I’m glad most American Jews aren’t like these frummers.

I agree with TampaZeke… I don’t usually like to judge the cultures of others, but I live in a largely Orthodox Jewish neighborhood, and considering what astoundingly homophobic, sexist and (often) racist people they are, I have no qualms about saying they have some of the worst and most ridiculous fashion sense of any religion.

“G-d” nor “God” is the name of the God in whom I believe. The Jews didn’t even stop saying Yahweh’s name aloud until after the Roman army destroyed Jerusalem in 70 AD.

If those Jews really studied their Hebrew Scriptures, they would know that the residents of Sodom were NEVER called “sodomites.” They were just called people. There is no word in the Bible for “sodomite” as far as the original languages are concerned.

Every place that the word “sodomite” shows up in the KJV Bible, the real word is kodesh and it means a holy person serving a deity. The religion in question is that of the Canaanites who worshiped their fertility gods, Asherah and Ba’al.

The Canaanites were residents of Canaan. Sodom wasn’t even in that country.

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

When we first reported on three American anti-gay activists traveling to Kampala for a three-day conference, we had no idea that it would be the first report of a long string of events leading to a proposal to institute the death penalty for LGBT people.

This report will be updated continuously as events continue to unfold. Check here for the latest updates.

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.
