Thread Name: BS: The Religious Left
Subject: RE: BS: The Religious Left
Exactly. I consider Jews to be of the same value as any other people. I believe in equality and brotherhood, not a Master Race or a Chosen People. I don't care what it says in some ancient book that was written by God knows who in some little tribe 3 or 4 thousand years ago, I care about what's happening right now. We need equality, not a Master Race. I do not envy Jews who have accomplished great things in entertainment, media, commerce, or whatever. What's to envy? I admire them for it, like I admire anyone who is good at doing something worthwhile.

Joan Baez said in her book that when she sees great talent she does not feel envious, she gets excited and inspired by it. That's how I feel. The only people I remember envying were guys who got to go out with girls I liked when I was a youngster! :-)
