Anti-Semitic Malik Zulu Shabbaz and Khalid Mohammad, first of all, don't scare this Jew enough to make her pee herself--they're just kvetching Kushim who are part of the Kushim noted in Ezekiel 38 (In other words, they're not of the remnant of Kushim.). Besides, we Yehudim--at least sometimes--do enough to make ourselves and each other "pee...[our] pants". For example, take "Rabbi" Jason Rosenberg: Jason Rosenberg, as a Jew, wants to lose First Amendment freedoms? He wants the Amendment construed to make obedience to Tanakh a crime?! "We will, in short, look back at Amendment 1 and its ilk in precisely the same way that we now look back at Jim Crow." Scary thinking! And that's not the only scary part--though it may be one of the scariest parts, or the scariest part.
"To be a Jew is remember how terrible it feels to be weak and oppressed, and therefore to act..." He of course forgot to add to obey Tanakh. Of course, his view is to disregard and disobey Tanakh:
If you’re part of a religious tradition that believes your revelation came directly, and perfectly, from God, then you probably won’t see the world the same way I do. But, as part of religious movement that embraces the fact that our texts, practices and traditions all have human origins, I have no choice but to also admit that those human origins have influenced those texts, practices and traditions. In other words, they don’t only reflect God’s will, but human biases and prejudices as well. They reflect the society from which they came.
This "rabbi" is pretty revisionist as well--besides in stating that "the fact that our texts, practices and traditions all have human origins". For example, Galileo was trying to interpret the Bible correctly to the chagrin of the Roman Catholic Church. Another example: "Religious leaders who refused to see the world changing were the ones who tried to justify slavery...and so on." Unbelievable lies.
Many religious leaders, in fact, pushed for freedom & womens' rights precisely because of religion--mainly true Christianity & true Judaism (especially Messianic--Complete--Judaism). By the way,"Rabbi" Jason Rosenberg reflects much of what is wrong with URJ Judaism, including that it is revisionist! Also, I've blogged enough about URJ (Reform) Judaism in the past, so just read my blog entries about it--I don't need to link you to everything.
