another hopeless post<quoted text>
HughBe---Given that the story of Esther is FICTIONAL and not HISTORICAL what justification is there for you to celebrate it?
Why do you and members of Judaism CELEBRATE a LIE.
Are the sheep told that Esther did NOT happen it is just a fable?
Do you read the book of Esther online?
Frijoles----Because we dont need to accept it as literally true in the historical sense to get meaning out of it (second time)
HughBe--- In what sense is Esther true, if not historically true?
We are certainly a bunch of IDIOTS if you are correct. To get meaning out of something does not mean that you should take a quantum leap and CELEBRATE a FICTIONAL event.
The ONLY people in the WORLD that celebrate a FICTIONAL character and FICTIONAL story are members of Judaism. It is no wonder that INTELLIGENCE who were once associated with your faith leave it. No doubt they FEEL, KNOW and THINK that you are a bunch of LUNATICS.
Why not celebrate the Aesop stories?
Are they without merit?
Definition of CELEBRATE--- "to observe (a day) or commemorate (an EVENT) with ceremonies or festivities: to celebrate Christmas; to celebrate the success of a new play."
Judahites COMMEMORATE a NON-EVENT or lie i.e. PURIM.
Is there any TRUTH in Judaism?
