These things are orthodox Jewish things, not my "things" and they are all
heavily documented. I made it my business to understand Judaism and
Zoroastrianism and Rg Vedan man, all precursors of Christianity, in order to appreciate
Christianity.You can't assume Judaism's Old Covenant is the same as Jesus' New
Covenant. It's not. I also notice, Debbie, that you are objecting over my
comment regarding women as chattel, taken directly from a Yeshiva University
professor's book. I did state the facts and gave you the reference. Go read it. The
Jewish Way in Love and Marriage, Maurice Lamm, Harper & Row, his brother is a
past president of Yeshiva University in New York.
As for supporting such things, the world is what it is. You don't deny what's
in front of your face because it's unpleasant. I didn't start the fire.
People in my church and your churches are embracing liberalism without
understanding the development of religion and its practical utility. That's my message.
Your candle metaphor is not apt.
