Minn. Jewish leaders oppose marriage amendment | Minnesota Public Radio News
Leave it to the Jews to figure out that The United States Constitution is based on the premise of LIMITED GOVERNMENT, a doctrine where you never want to tell a certain segment of the population what they CAN NOT do and always want to tell the government what it CAN NOT DO.
Unbelievable that with all the financial problems we face as a nation there are still morons that are worried about gay folks loving each other.
Good for them, but it's a little tough to figure out. The Old Testament speaks against homosexuality multiple times and the New Testament never does, yet this kind of stuff takes place.
They were not speaking as Jewish theologians, but as advocates for civil liberty. The laws of man are not the laws of God, and are to be judged by a different standard.
Well i would think those men who follow those laws would want their laws to align with the laws given to them by their god.
I'm a non-believer so I dont' care about that stuff, just saying it seems a little weird how this takign place.
Actually that's a matter of serious dispute in Israel. But in America, Jews live as a religious minority, so the question doesn't arise. The laws in the Torah are not for everyone, they're for Jews. What often concerns Jews w/r/t the laws of the land in this country is not their compliance with Jewish law but their protection of the rights of minorities -- like the Jews themselves.
which is why most jews are liberals. we have a natural tendency to distrust any system which victimizes minorities and will oppose such things even to our own detriment. we also tend to thrive in moderate systems of government and tend to get walloped by anything too far left or right.
Got no problem victimizing Catholics though... liberals, not Jews.
