Sweetie, maybe you should have someone who doesn't share your selective reading disorder help you read my posts before you respond. It would help you avoid embarrassing yourself like this. We both know that the "nonsense" I was referring to wasn't the Hebrew in sacred writings, but your pathetic ventriloquist act. the only thing profane here is you with your hand up the backside of a Rabbi puppet and trying to pretend that he is the one talking to us.

Let's see just how silly and obtuse you are going to be now.

Said the talking dog, but your avatar should really be a pig because sharing any scripture with you is like throwing pearls before swine -- see Matthew 7:6.

I'm sure you know more than that, but you still aren't acquainted with scripture, old testament or new, are you?

You really should have kept reading dear, there was a message for you just a few more verses on, say from 15-23. Now that should concern you a lot more than whether you are mayhaps casting pearls before swine, because by your fruits and seriously disturbed ventriloquist act we know you punkin and it ain't the least bit good.

You don't determine what concerns me, and what concerns me at the moment is your anonymous talking dog act that dismisses scripture just because it isn't "gay" enough for you.

You are not fooling anyone but yourself. Your special hatred of joe and I is the same as that which herodias felt for John the Baptist.

Moby says, "you have finally lost whatever you have been passing off as your mind" and I have to concur. Your fantasy that my dog is talking to you in the same manner that you have had the Rabbi Israel Stein (retired) talk to us, while amusing in its own way, is not a good sign. Rabbi Israel Stein (retired) said, "you need help..., cupcake".

So why do you think all those verses condemning homosexual behavior don't apply to YOU?

Sweetie, I'm not the least bit dismissive of scripture, so once again, your concern is misplaced. What I am dismissive of dumpling, is your choice of interpretations of said scriptures, as told to us by your Rabbi Israel Stein (retired) puppet, in one of the worst ventriloquists acts to ever run here. Understand the difference yet?

Of course you are, especially when it contradicts your gay world view, yet you couldn't openly challenge Stein's scholarly Hebrew without looking like the fool you really are, so instead you continue to deny what Stein himself actually said about the book of Samuel.

From Forward Day By Day!

SATURDAY, January 12

Galatians 3:23-29; 4:4-7.* There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus.
This is a favorite verse of those whose favorite adjective for the church is “inclusive.” They typically want leadership positions opened to persons whom others would bar. The issue today often centers on gender or sexual orientation, but that wasn’t always the issue. In the fourth century, a group called the Donatists sought to bar from church leadership anyone who under threat of persecution had thrown incense on the altar of the emperor, thereby compromising his faith, even if that person had later repented.

Augustine’s teaching eventually carried the day and became the orthodox Christian position. Augustine taught that the character of the priest or bishop has no bearing on the validity of the sacraments, for it is Christ, not the clergy, who acts in the sacraments and validates them. People then, as now, differed about moral questions and whom to ordain, but in any case, nothing a priest or bishop does (and if we’re going to judge our leaders, there’s more than sexual orientation to consider) cancels the promises of Christ.

But it is the issue for Ricky and his ilk whose ONLY adjective for the church is "inclusive".

Sweetie, it would help the discussion immensely if you would quit referring to your puppet as an actual participant, you're sounding like Corky Withers and Fats and it's just plain creepy. Your puppet is only an intermediary for YOUR thoughts on the subject dear, there merely to lend credibility they likely would not otherwise have. But now that you have been exposed as nothing more than a pathological fraud, that is pretty much shot to hell. None of what you claim that the good Rabbi has said can be verified, even when the real good Rabbi was asked directly to do so.

If you want to deal with reality, I am more than happy to do so, but if you're going to insist on clinging to your pathetic fantasies, expect a lot of pointing and laughing.

When "reality" contradicts your gay world view, you can't openly challenge Stein's scholarly Hebrew without looking like the fool you really are, so instead you continue to deny what Stein himself actually said about the book of Samuel.

And posting an "open letter" on Topix is not directly contacting anyone, especially when Stein has a listed phone # and email account.
