Finding Faith

27 August, 2012 (09:30) | Philosophy, Religion, Social Commentary | 2 comments

I am a skeptic. I am an atheist. I am scientific, faithless, grounded, requiring proof. Or at least I am mostly. I’ve always felt pangs of envy for the blind faith people are able to feel–that knowledge that something with no proof whatsoever is out there and the ability to use that knowledge to drive […]

Stereophonic Ethnicity

20 November, 2009 (14:36) | Religion, Social Commentary | No comments

“Does anyone have a buck I can borrow?” “Sure, I do,” I said, reaching for my wallet. “Don’t do it, man,” Harold interjected. “He’ll ask for a pound of flesh in return.” — Jew jokes are my bread and butter. Generally people know I’m a Jew within the first hour they know me, and they […]

A Lonely Jew on Christmas

23 December, 2008 (10:21) | Religion | 6 comments

It’s that time of year again; that time of year when we Jews trade in our menorahs for hanukkiahs and our guilt for gelt. Welcome to eight nights of lots of latkes and scads of soufganiot… or it would be, were I keeping up with the Cohens. This year, I get to play Passover’s four […]

Popped Collars

30 September, 2005 (22:45) | Religion | No comments

Change is necessary. Sometimes, all it takes is a former Catholic priest telling you the answer to all your problems is more hugging. And sometimes hearing that just creeps you out. You were in the same class as Cardinal Law, right? Great…

Grand Theft Papal

29 April, 2005 (05:18) | Religion | 34 comments

There we were, our eyes glaring at the screen in concentration, waiting to see if we could do it; hoping we could, and would, become the next pope. You remember the Last Starfighter, that phenomenal 80s film in which a small town boy gets to become a starfighter because he got a high score on […]

Pope: “My Senility is Clouding My Judgment”

23 February, 2005 (13:00) | Religion | 20 comments

As seen on CNN.com… ROME, Italy (Reuters) — Homosexual marriages are part of “a new ideology of evil” that is insidiously threatening society, Pope John Paul says in his newly published book. In “Memory and Identity,” the Pope also calls abortion a “legal extermination” comparable to attempts to wipe out Jews and other groups in […]

Halloween Fun

A 6 step program to true Halloween fun: 1) Find a few friends to hang out with… 2) Get everyone dressed up as Arabs 3) Locate the local Hell House 4) Pay to go in 5) Repeat “there is only One god and Mohammed is his prophet” over and over in hushed tones during the […]

Love, Religion, and the Unerring Truth

8 November, 2002 (22:49) | Religion | 2 comments

Tonight, I was given a chance to share the company of several lovely ladies. Sadly, I know every one of them would decide not to date me on the basis that I don’t share their belief in god. I’m envious of the faithful. The ability to blindly accept what you have been told is something […]
