Bigotry hides behind Scripture in NY

This is just sad... especially this Rabbi

Demonstrators on both sides of the issue were relatively scarce in the Capitol on Wednesday. A small group of Orthodox Jews gathered outside the Senate chamber, one of them holding a sign that read “Gay Union/A Rebellion Against the Almighty.”

Rabbi Yisroel Dovid Weiss of Monsey, N.Y., said he traveled to Albany to remind the Senate “that the world belongs to the Almighty, and they have to reckon with his rules and his law.”

Would someone in NY take a second and remind the Rabbi that he

a) Doesn't actually speak for the Almighty
b) Not everyone believes in what he perceives to be the Almighty
c) Doesn't make laws in this country, people do for themselves. You choose personally whether or not to follow the laws of the Almighty but you CAN NOT force others to follow those laws.
d) Not everyone believes in the same laws as laid out by his interpretation of the dictates of what he calls the Almighty. Some of us love some bacon and shellfish. And bacon wrapped shellfish (grilled or fried, either way).

And to our weak sister from the Bronx, a pox on you and I wish an El Pollo Loco would open next door to your home.
