One hundred thousand people can die, and people will ignore it. War is something that happens to countries – not people. The bullshit will continue spreading until someone steps forward to stop it. Love and pease should not be cliche’s that are mocked and disregarded. The downfall of all humanity will come at the hands of those who don’t appreciate humanity. How much suffering will it take? How much greed can exist? Who needs to steal 50 billion dollars? People need to understand one another. People need to listen to one another. People need to tolerate and respect one another, even if it seems that their differences are significant. Dialogue. Discussion. Collaboration. Demonstrations of love and kindness.

Orthodox Community Must Disown Bernie Madoff

January 13, 2009

As an Orthodox Jew, all I have to say is that I’m embarrassed of Bernie Madoff, and hope that all of the non-Jews out there can realize that he is not representative of who we are. Orthodox Jews are not greedy bastards willing to sell-out their own friends in order to buy another house in Florida. He disgusts us.

Unfortunately, I have not heard enough criticism of Madoff from Orthodox leaders. Nobody has come out and said that he is no longer welcome in our community, and that people like him can get the hell out!

What disturbs me, however, is that the Orthodox community doesn’t have much of a problem speaking out against Gays and Lesbians who want to be a part of the community. People who have done nothing to hurt anyone else, and are simply living a lifestyle that is different from the mainstream Orthodox community. These innocent people are discriminated against in almost every corner of the Jewish community.

Attention Rabbis and Community Leaders: Leave these honest and respectable GLBT Jews alone, and work on kicking out those lying, cheating heterosexual old white stealing men!
