Silly Rabbi, Tricks Are For Kids




Posted at 8:14 by Gavin M.

What’s that? No, I’ll finish this glass of stale old Hell first, if you don’t…

1000 Rabbis Warn: Open Homosexuality in the Military is a Disaster and May Cause Further Natural Disasters

Fine, splendid, freshen it for me, then.

Uh, may cause further what, now?

Rabbi Yehuda Levin, spokesman for the Rabbinical Alliance of America issued the following statement: “When Americans are suffering economically and millions need jobs, it’s shocking that the Administration is focused on its ultra-liberal militantly homosexualist agenda forcing the highlighting of homosexuals and homosexuality on an unwilling military.

At least they aren’t ‘ramming it down the throat’ of the military, like usually.1 No, but Rabbi Levin seems like a man often shocked. More specifically, he seems like the sort of bully who flaps his arms and backs into you and then cries that you pushed him. That’s one of the best kinds, and we’re preparing for an ongoing relationship by assigning him a facile nickname (Rabbi “Yehuda Hellcares” Levi) and sketching out a Photoshop piece in which the female figure in this Marc Chagall painting is bearded and wearing a hat and tallis. Oh yes, and this we say to you, Shletero:2 If their hair needs some highlights, and indeed if they’re being preferentially marked in attention-getting transparent yellow, these militant gays in the military,3 then azoy gay-it es.4 Yes, and furthermore:

…If you know what we’re saying, and we think that you farshtaist.5

This is the equivalent of the spiritual rape of our military to satisfy the most extreme and selfish cadre of President Obama’s kooky coalition.

It’s like the equivalent of raping the troops with the spiritual equivalent of a big hairy moose peen, while his black friends watch.

We agree with Eileen Donnelly of the Center for Military Readiness that this will hurt the cohesiveness of the military, cause many to leave the army, and dramatically lower the number of recruits, perhaps leading to the reinstatement of a compulsory draft.

Because the Center for Military Readiness is certainly not one of those phony wingnut security foundations that sprang up after 9/11.

“Thirteen months before 9/11, on the day New York City passed homosexual domestic partnership regulations, I joined a group of Rabbis at a City Hall prayer service, pleading with G-d not to visit disaster on the city of N.Y.

That worked out great.

So no, basically, those hijacked airliners were like the egg beaters raining from the sky in the Far Side cartoon where the Indian is like, “Whoa, what kind of dance was I doing?” Because it was actually supposed to be a gay partnership G_d-mollifying dance, and instead it brought religious fanatics raining down in passenger aircraft? Like, um, really?

Because speaking just for myself, I personally would think it over before putting something on my rabbinical c.v. like “cockamamie prayers caused terror attacks of 9/11.” Because then the next thing is that everybody keeps looking at you funny every time something blows up nearby — as if nothing in the world ever blew up in a total spontaneous gaysplosion caused by G_d, as things so often do.

Example: June, 1999, when the Stonewall Inn was listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and JFK Jr.’s plane immediately crashed into the ocean off Gay Head, Massachusetts. Another example is the Krakatoa explosion in 1883, caused by something Walt Whitman did.

These are the things they start to blame you for, when all you’re doing is walking around minding your own business and decrying the spiritual something-like-rape of the equivalent of the American soldier, not to mention sailor. Because whoops, there goes G_d again with the blowing-up and the kaboom, when barely over a year earlier you’d asked him not to do that.

We have seen the underground earthquake, tsunami, Katrina, and now Haiti. All this is in sync with a two thousand year old teaching in the Talmud that the practice of homosexuality is a spiritual cause of earthquakes.

“All this is in the sink!” said the 2,000-Year-Old who is still teaching in the Talmud after all these years, and we should all be so lucky. “I keep calling Moe the plumber, and all I hear is that he’s coming. ‘Mr. Shiach is coming any time now,’ they say. Well, I’m still wai…[doorbell rings] holy cats, it’s Menachem Schneerson.”6

Once a disaster is unleashed, innocents are also victims just like in Chernobyl.

This reminds us for some reason: What has ol’ Pastor Swank been up to since the last time we…

J. Grant Swank, Jr., Truth in Conviction
CHRISTIAN VS. VOODOO IN HAITI

[...]

Now voodoo priests are up in arms about the contest. But they should realize that there is plenty of need to go around. Why do any persons have the strength or time to whine about others helping others?

If voodoo spokespersons want to spill goats’ blood and see drum their incantations, go to it. But don’t slam Christians who are working night and day to bring relief.

Because hey, that’s what you call a voo-don’t. But since there’s nothing out of the ordinary here, let’s go back to the rabbi.

“We plead with saner heads in Congress and the Pentagon to stop sodomization of our military and our society. Enough is enough.”

No argument here. Most heads are saner than the Rabbi’s even in Congress and the Pentagon, and P.S., have you seen what they’ve done to Sodom lately?

Rabbi Levin will be available to talk to the media in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday, February 2, 2010, in proximity of the Senate Armed Services Committee hearings featuring Defense Secretary Robert Gates.

Proximity just like in Chernobyl. No, seriously: It was an outstanding media availability in which Rabbi Levin really stood out, literally at the threshold of public hearing.

We miss him already and look forward to the next time he comes in the public’s eye, despite the mess and the stinging sensation.


1 Cf., and cf. This style reaches what you’d have to call a climax in the following passage from wingnut conspiracy nut Jackie Jura: “Even cartoons ooze with sex, and every show lately pounds with homosexuality. Recently a movie named KINSEY got rave reviews for telling the story of zoologist-cum-sex researcher Alfred Kinsey who brought homosexuality and other deviations mainstream.” Research on zoologist cum is often misunderstood.

2 Var. ‘Shlomo’ (cf.)

3 Cf. Orwell’s “Politics and the English Language,” and its treatment of ‘dead’ and ‘dying’ metaphors. The infelicity in which a root word modifies itself seems suddenly to be everywhere (like the ancient and unstoppable grocer’s apostrophe and written air quote). An especially good example can be seen on a current billboard for People’s Bank, apparently quoting a Barron’s review which called them “A BANK TO BANK ON.” As though to complete the chain of irony, the phrase also appears in this May, 2007 Business Week item citing Bank of America as “a good defensive stock that has lagged the rally.” Merely gratuitous is the comic association here.

4 Yidd.: Azoy gait es (“that’s how it goes”). (Cf. Ger.: We’re gayin’.)

5 I.e., Mayn prom (shveb-shif) iz ful mit veners. This is by way of saying that one’s aéroglisseur or Luftkissenfahrzeug is full of anguilles or Aale, or in other words that ilmatyynyalukseni on täynnä ankeriaita.

6 The Lubavitchers now have a joke. When in the future they tell it, one can call out, “Number one!” and another can reply, “Feh.”

    “Gays in the military” is meaningless. It keeps getting dredged back up because it’s “politically incorrect” to talk about any political issue with real implications, like “will i and my kids have a job” or “will my kids get an education” or “will social security and medicare and pensions still work when my kids grow up?”

    You, Gavin, are contributing to the propaganda noise machine. We would forgive you, if you did it for the money. Or the lulz. But you do it because “YOU S’POSTA.” We can’t forgive you for that.

    (Nice scare quotes there, Santie.)

    Here’s the thing: Obama has done quite a few things to really piss off the left-wing. It’s about time he did something to really piss off the right-wing, just for the sake of balance (it’s bipartisanship!)

    Anyway, the first necessary step in keeping your laundry list of political fears from coming true is to fix the fucking economy, which has recently been pillaged by the military-industrial complex, looted by Wall Street and left near-dead. And guess what, that means taxes, bitches. The tab run up by the dry-drunk dauphin and his pals has to be paid. If that pisses you off, be pissed at them, not the ones they stuck with the bills.

    All this is in sync with a two thousand year old teaching in the Talmud that the practice of homosexuality is a spiritual cause of earthquakes.

    But San Francisco had its great earthquake in 1906, and it was later on that San Francisco became the gay-associated wingnut boogeyman it is today, so maybe the Talmud has it backwards and it’s earthquakes that are the spiritual cause of homosexuality.

    Betcha never thought of that, Rabbi Smartypants.

    So, all tectonic plates are male, and when they rub against , thrust into or otherwise “get busy with” one another it causes earthquakes?

    Funny how the Wiki entry on “Chabad” never once mentions their youth camps in Israel where they recruit vulnerable young American students into their cult. There are other hasidic groups, but the Lubavitchers, with their messianic cult mythos, right-wing hypocrisy and misogyny, and coercive attitude towards members/recruits make all the other hassidim look bad. (Yes, I do believe they’re the Scientology of Judaism.)

    The rabbi is right. The spiritually raped and incohesive Israeli military has allowed homosexuals to openly serve, without exception to type of unit, since 1993. And we’ve seen how weak and pitiful their military has been ever since? In fact, if it weren’t for gays in the military George W. wouldn’t have had to invade Iraq at all. The pre-gay Israeli armed forces would have been able to do it all by themselves, and Egypt would now be a creationist theme park run by Ben Stein. or something.

    [T]he Lubavitchers, with their messianic cult mythos, right-wing hypocrisy and misogyny, and coercive attitude towards members/recruits make all the other hassidim.

    My one experience with them was as I was walking to the subway in Manhattan. Up pulls a huge RV (looked like those mobile blood banks) and out pours — like it was a commando operation — about 20 Lubavitchers, mostly in the 12 to 18 age range with only 3 or 4 accompanying adults. And they just start singing and dancing. It was so bizarre. (I did some googling on this and it appears they’ve been doing this since the ’70s — cruising the streets of NYC looking for wayward Jews.)

    In L.A. too. They call the vehicle (because it sounds like a cool military operation instead of a meshugga religious-cultic spasm of acting out) “The Mitzvah Tank.”

    You’re walking down the street and they charge up to you and demand to know, “ARE YOU JEWISH?” and, if you say yes, they invite you into the tank to pray. Or to pray then and there on the street.

    So, see, Swank? Jews can be just as insane as the kraziest Kristian.

    Okay, how about some bipartisanship, democratic compromise style? Let the marines out of the closet, let the navy be gay on the job, but insist they go straight when they are on leave, and insist the airforce stay straight, but introduce the rule that “if its in topgun, it doesn’t count as gay”

    Gavin, you’re too smart for me, and I love it.

    Also, why haven’t we started talking about foreskins yet? This is a thread about Jewishness, right? Doesn’t that naturally lead to PENIS!?!

    What’s all this I hear about goys in the military?

    I don’t think the military should discriminate based on religion, it should be open to all. Besides, I don’t think there are enough Jews to fill all the roles in the military. Why I –

    What’s that?

    Oh, nevermind.

    They’re not above cruising for the occasional goy man.

    +100 for making me wet my pants

    I do a mean cover of Sam and Dave’s “Soul Man” with Goy Man lyrics…

    Funny- I’d like to ask the Rabbi what he thinks of the Israeli Army- what with their acceptance of Homosexuality and all.

    here are other hasidic groups, but the Lubavitchers, with their messianic cult mythos, right-wing hypocrisy and misogyny, and coercive attitude towards members/recruits make all the other hassidim look bad. (Yes, I do believe they’re the Scientology of Judaism.)

    So what kind of prayer was that anyway? “Dear G_d, please, it would be a shame if something was to happen to New York. Like an earthquake or a terrorist attack, you know, something bad, farshtaist?”. But I can relate. I mean, who hasn’t prayed for s_mething only to have the opp_site happen, m_re than a year later? But has he c_nsidered that it might have been something else that caused G_d to send Islamist hijackers to destroy the WTC? Because in June of 2001 there was a bill submitted to legalize ferrets, which are detested in the sight of the lord, and then three months later, wham!

    I think the Scientology of Judaism is those Kaballah guys who’ll sell you a red string for thirty bucks. The Lubavitchers are basically the the Jewish version of the Campus Crusade for Christ.

    It’s true. Where you find stupid, you’ll also find conservatives.

    @Lesley: “Is there any form of stupid, especially in matters of homosexuality, in which at least one conservative did not take part?”

    That post was a little inside Judaism, don’t you think?
