Catholic father baptizes Jewish daughter and defies court order

March 3, 2010

As a man who made a child with a gentile this issue comes close to my heart, but I understand that in the end a human being grows up and makes his own decisions. We should have more faith in our kids then to assume that they are all just blank states for brainwashing. I am confident that no matter what amount of Christianity my son’s grandparents give him that in the end he is going to want to know the other opinion. Jewish people need to have more faith in Judaism.

If a Christian is truly religious they will try to understand what Rabbinical Judaism is saying. Religion should not be a loyalty like a sports team. The questions religion proposes between Judaism and Christianity are in such a way that if there is no coercion that each individual has an opportunity to find either direction. There are also many variations between the duality of these faiths.

As a Jew many are shocked that I consider the idea of Kabbalah to be deeply pagan and idolatrous. The Torah to me is inspired by g-d and while probably very accurate is not to be considered the actual words of g-d. This puts even myself in conflict with other Jews and it is a deep philosophical schism that I have with a people who often ritually kiss Torah scrolls. I see no reason to any manifestation of g-d in literature. One would think this would put me at odds with the Jewish community, but it doesn’t because the schism has not been politicized like the break between Judaism and Christianity.

Throughout the video interview Rebecca Reyes tears-up. She claims “This is about parenting. This is not about religion.” But the interview transcripts tell a different story.
(Excerpt):“Judaism is who I am when I wake up in the morning. It’s saying the Shema (every morning and every night before I go to bed). It’s lighting Shabbas candles every Friday and having Shabbas dinner…I observe Passover, eight days of Passover, strictly. I observe Rosh Hashanah, I observe Yom Kippur… “


I truly wonder how interested in g-d either of these parents are or if this is really about their egos and taking punitive action on a former lover. It is so sad that their child is caught in the middle of this. The father is breaking his word and neither parent has understanding of their faith. This is a decision for the child to make.

67% of US Hate Crimes are Against Jews

November 26, 2009

Our friend Debbie Schlussel is on the ball, yet again, with exclusive analysis on hate crimes in America:

Well, the FBI official hate crimes statistics are out for 2008. And like every year since the 9/11 Muslim terrorist attacks on America, the vast majority of religious hate crime victims on U.S. soil are America’s Jews. While the Pentagon and US Army did overtime pandering to Muslims like Nidal Malik Hasan, the real hatred was against one set of his mortal enemies…….more than a few of those anti-Semitic hate crime perpetrators are, in fact, Muslims….Missing from the FBI stats are the stats on the perpetrators of these crimes, which I’d bet would be very telling.

EXCLUSIVE Analysis: Sorry, Islamophobia Pimps – 67% of US Hate Crimes Against Jews

That’s right. A whopping 66.69%–or just over 2/3rds–of America’s religion-based hate crime incidents are committed against Jews. But, hey, there’s no anti-Semitism. I’m just imagining it. The real condition afflicting America is Islamophobia, right? Let’s ignore that only 6.91% of hate crime incidents were against Muslims, with Catholics very close behind comprising 4.94% of hate crime incident victims. Sadly, some Catholic leaders look the other way on anti-Semitism (more on that below).

Another fact that is very inconvenient to Muslim propaganda is the fact that hate crimes against Jews and Catholics are growing, but hate crimes against Muslims, not. In 2007, there were 969 reported hate crime incidents against Jews in America. In 2008, it’s 1,013. In 2007, there were 61 anti-Catholic incidents. In 2008, there were 75. For Muslims, in 2007 there were 115 reported incidents against them. In 2008, it’s 105. And all of this is despite the fact that unlike other groups, Islamic groups work overtime to get alleged Islamic victims to report hate crimes.

Yup, America’s hate is carried out not against the fellow co-religionists of the 9/11 hijackers–you know, the Muslims. They’re carried out against the most hated targets of the Muslims: the “evil Zionists.” And–guess what?–more than a few of those anti-Semitic hate crime perpetrators are, in fact, Muslims. Missing from the FBI stats are the stats on the perpetrators of these crimes, which I’d bet would be very telling.

Groups like CAIR, ADC, ISNA, MAS, and MPAC–the alphabet soup of Muslim and Muslim-dominated Arab groups–love to tout “Islamophobia” as a vast and wide-spread “bigotry” in America. But it ain’t so. The numbers simply don’t back it up.

Incidentally, while I lament that hate crimes against Catholics are slightly up, I have to laugh at Bill Donohue, President of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, who was quoted in USA Today upset over this. I made him aware that Emily M. Zanotti, a Catholic working for his Catholic friend Richard Thompson at the Catholic Thomas More Law Center, spent all day long on the payroll blogging in support and praise of Muslim Holocaust-denying anti-Semitic death, rape, and torture threats against me and my family (including my Holocaust survivor grandmother). He looked the other way. Ms. Zanotti is now employed by the Sam Adams Alliance, which is aware of her anti-Semitism and praise for violence and torture . . . and doesn’t care. Michelle Malkin (also Catholic) was made aware of this and continues to help Zanotti and Sam Adams Alliance, anyway.

Stuff like this is why anti-Semitic hate crimes are up. It’s not just Muslims and others who are perpetrating it. It’s phonies in positions of influence who are looking the other way and giving it tacit approval.
