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   


     "Fundamentalist Christians have moved the theological needle so far to the right that the Gospel is said by them to be a 'progressive agenda.' It's not – it's the Gospel. We must keep preaching Jesus' message of the Kingdom of God (over against the kingdoms of this world) rooted in love (not legalism) and aimed toward reconciliation (not division). The Pharisees alleged Jesus' message was a 'liberal agenda.' It wasn't – it was the Gospel."

– The Rev. Dr. Steve Harper in a Facebook post.
