http://rjr10036.typepad.com/proceed_at_your_own_risk/2008/03/oy-there-goes-t.htmlRichard describes himself as the "most radical queer in NYC". He writes a blog regularly. It can be very funny. From today's entry:"We thought up monotheism and look what you did with it! Evangelicals, Puritans and Islamoterrorism. Oy. We gave you the Ten Commandments and what did you do with it? Oy! We gave you communism and what did you do with it? Oy. We gave you psychoanalysis and what did you do with it? Oy."..."The nation's leading Jewish secular newspaper, The Forward reports that Gay Synagogues are under siege."..."When Gayanne Geurin Weiss and her husband went looking for an Atlanta synagogue to join, they soon found one that had everything they wanted; it was warm, friendly and spiritual. There was just one catch: It was for gay men and lesbians, and Weiss and her husband are straight."..."Gay and lesbian Jews had founded Congregation Bet Haverim because they felt that the Jewish world did not want them around. But when [straight] families like the Weisses came knocking on the door of Bet Haverim, its members had to decide just what kind of synagogue they wanted it to be."..."Rabbi Eric Yoffie, president of the URJ, said he expects that ultimately, most gay- and lesbian-focused congregations would disappear, because gay men and lesbians would be at ease in Reform congregations; however, he said that day wouldn’t come until discrimination in society has been largely eliminated."Maybe there is some hope for some religion in America. Not everybody is like Hagee and Wright.
