[Chabad posts on its website a letter from a Catholic nun, who was in a relationship with a Jewish woman.]

Beware of the dangers of tragic stories

We want to be compassionate kind human beings and that sometimes can gradually lead to too much toleration.

Personalized heart-breaking stories can lead or manipulate more and more good people to making long-term incremental changes that eventually harm their own community. First comes recognition of the ‘pain’ of others with our empathy and sympathy, then some measure toleration, then more toleration and acceptance, and finally Laws are amended.

The politically-correct liberalization of Judaism in America with Jews re-writing the Laws to fit their modern social and political values and placate their egos has created a Holocaust of Assimilation and brought great damage to our families.

Publishing such a story pushes for some limited degree of emotional acceptance for homosexual couples and interfaith marriages. This is a line that should not have been breached.

This borders on belonging more in RSTDT. Either way, this person's moronic.

That's a whole load of boggle right there. And Chabad is an asshole frummer. But I repeat myself.

"Holocaust of Assimilation"

Umm... Did this guy just want to stick the word 'holocaust' in because it's about jews?

There's an Oscar-winning movie in that.

"Personalized heart-breaking stories can lead or manipulate more and more good people to making long-term incremental changes that eventually harm their own community."

The next thing you know, liberals will be passing law against beating someone up and tying him to a fence.

" has created a Holocaust of Assimilation and brought great damage to our families. "

Because that's what Hitler did, he vigorously enforced civil rights laws.

Edit: notice the comments about idol worshippers. Dumbass jewish fundies think christians worship statues. For additional irony, protestant fundies like to say catholics aren't christians because they worship statues.

Jewish Fundie. Once you cross that line you'll start loving your neighbour like yourself.
Ask yourself: What would Rabbi Hillel do?

I can't take seriously anyone who uses made up words; including 'irregardless', 'heighth', and 'toleration'.

Doubting Thomas

I really wonder about people who argue against tolerance in any form.

But never mind that, I want to hear more about this nun having a hot lesbian affair with another woman.

Holocaust of Assimilation

I fucking hate how casually people use Nazis and the Holocaust and compare it to every inconvenience or different point of view they run across. And this one doesn't even make any goddamn sense. Holocaust of Assimilation? What is that? Are they being killed by Borg Nazis?

Where have I heard something like this before? Oh yeah.

"We must keep the races pure!"

Really. How dare people reject those obsolete and bigoted authoritarian values? Next thing you know, we won't be able to point them at those damned (insert racial slur here) and yell, "HATE! KILL!" Who do they think they are? We do all the cherry picking around here!

The problem is, this comment is one of many (lots of which are quite supportive) posted about this article, which was originally a letter to the Lubavitcher Rebbe (zt"l). Personally, I'm glad Chabad published this letter at all.

Yeah, Jewish fundies exist, and I'm coming to terms with that, but I'm just glad that they make up a minority even among our Orthodox (well, okay some branches of our Orthodox). The Talmud says: "the highest form of wisdom is kindness". Let's continue to keep that precept.

@Dionysus:

Anon probably means 'We jews are being wiped out by interbreeding and cultural integration,' which is still a load of bullshit.

Also, anyone else's irony meter redzoning on this one?

Tolerance, empathy and sympathy are bad, gotcha.

Extraintrovert

Yeah, we get it, you would rather mindlessly defend your interpretation of a millennia-old collection of mythology than express the slightest measure of compassion and empathy for anyone not exactly like you. You don't need to reiterate it again.

@Mister Spak
"notice the comments about idol worshippers. Dumbass jewish fundies think christians worship statues. For additional irony, protestant fundies like to say catholics aren't christians because they worship statues."

Statues are considered rather important in numerous Christian denomination. I don't think it's outright worship, but there is a level of reverence involved.

So, to sum up, you're against tolerance, empathy, sympathy and acceptance if they are directed toward anyone who isn't like you.

5/24/2012 7:20:12 AM

OhJohnNo

@C_V: Irregardless is a generally accepted colloquialism, even if it doesn't actually make any sense.

Me too. That sounds awesome.

So Chad here obeyed his mom when she demanded he marry a Jew... which is probably why he's divorced and has sex with random men in the park (just guessing from his general fundyness)

The word "tolerance" isn't even in your vocabulary is it?
The world will continue to be fucked up until everyone who thinks like you is extinct.

Yeah, cuz being a hateful, sociopathic, mean, ornery, judgemental, brutish jerk is so much better than being a kind, giving, loving, charitable, peaceful, intelligent, good human being, gotcha....Well, I think you & your Demiurge are douchenozzles. Thank you.

Oh no, people might see that gays are people to and treat them with the respect they deserve, including giving them equal rights. The horror! </sarcasm>

Who does anyone think they are, to not be okay with interfaith marriages?
