Would it matter? There are a multitude of things that can take us from the world, but if we leave a positive mark on it, that's all that really matters. Golem did. He left his bright mark with his God, his places of worship, and in the hearts of those that loved him.

Have you make a bright mark?

It's never too late to do that.

The vast majority of gay people don't have AIDS, of course. And very few of us commit suicide, despite that fear and hatred from others so many of us experience.

But a person's life is not about how death comes. It's about what we do with the time we have.

Have you made a positive mark on the lives of others? Have you made a difference in this world?

If you haven't, I suggest you start now. Death comes to us all, too quickly for most. Make the most of your life.

Wow!

Really?!?

A person posts that a good friend, a champion for justice and equality has DIED, and all you can do is find something mean spirited, negative and stereotypical to say.

Your reply, speaks volumes about your LACK of compassion, your LACK of kindness, your LACK of eduction on or about gays and HIV.

I feel sorry for you.

For the record, he did not die from AIDS. His cause of death was a massive myocardial infarction caused by coronary arterial occlusion and he was in his 70's.

He was a better human being than you could ever hope to be and he made a positive difference in this world.

It is with great sadness that I report the death of my dear friend and Topix ally, The Golem. He died this past Wednesday the 12th of October, 2011.
He was a fierce defender of the right of the LGBT community. He was a Torah scholar and in recent years was a rabbinic student. In another year, he would have been ordained.
Golem was married to his partner of more than 2 decades and was married here in California.
Whether you knew him as a friend or foe, he was a good man, with a very kind heart and did a great many good things in this world, dedicating himself to the pursuit of truth, justice and equality.
Remember him.

I am sad to hear of his passing. Clearly a impassioned and intelligent man, he was a most worthy adversary. I said something unfairly harsh to him once that I regret.

My sincere sympathies to both you and his partner.

<quoted text>I didn't know The Golem but I am curious why did he disrespect God by calling him G-d?
I wonder if The Golem made it to Heaven when he died, if so, does he now call God by his rightful name?
It's not really up for man to judge. That's between him and God right?

I considered him to be a friend and a brother. This is very sad news. I will miss him a great deal. He was truly a great man, knowledgeable, scholarly with a deep spiritual nature. I'm sure he is on to an even greater spiritual adventure in the ever after.

Brother Golem, may you rest in peace.

Shalom.

I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your friend. I read a few of his posts, and he seemed like a very kind, and intelligent person. It's so sad to lose someone who is an influence for peace in this world.

You know what? It is not surprising to see who the real people of God are. The ones posting nasty BS are nothing more than mean spirited trolls. Let's honor our friend Golem's memory by ignoring them. They don't deserve the time of day.

Peace.

Your comment is very touching. I agree with you. It is sad to have regrets. I'm sure Golem has forgiven you.

Peace.
