Orthodox Rabbi Comments

You want to do this the way Jesus would? Then, look to us, your Orthodox Jewish big brothers and sisters.

We do not base Judaism upon belief. We do not seek to discriminate between 'good' Jews and 'bad' Jews. We do not enshrine hatred (GLBT people are 'bad', etc.) in our Jewish documents.

What do we do? We embrace all Jews. ALL JEWS!

Suggestion: Get over all your politics. Dump the Book of Discipline. Get over the 'we are the real McCoy but you (fill in the blank) are sinners and going to Hell' nonsense.

Faith is not about power and control, people.

Notable Quotes   


    "The Judicial Council’s work compellingly shows that our denomination is in schism and has been for some years and if we really want to heal this schism, then (dare I say it?) we have to back up and try our best to answer basic questions. What is it, actually, that unites United Methodists? ...  If doctrines do not define church, then we don’t know our identity or mission. If we don’t know our identity and mission, we will never be able to agree on what constitutes appropriate or inappropriate behavior and we will never be able to exercise meaningful accountability."

– The Rev. Steven Rankin, in a post "Judicial Council Proves We're Already in Schism"
