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 


"... Sometimes the gospel confronts us with values that are counter to a white supremacist, nationalist, militaristic, xenophobic, homophobic, misogynistic, anti-environmental, or ableist agenda. Even without mentioning a specific president, a sermon that preaches the values of welcoming the immigrant, obeying the commandment not to murder, lifting up 'the least of these,' or valuing black lives can be mistakenly perceived as promoting a 'liberal agenda.'"

– Leah D. Schade, "What to Do When Parisioners Leave ... Because of Politics."
