Jews may not be increasing, everybody else seems to be. Minority babies in the U.S. are now aborn the majority. That was old news in LA hospitals for years. Its lucky for us in LA, because in a quarter of all US counties there are more coffins than cradles now.
My world is largely defined by my monthly dose of National Geographic Society (NGS) magazine.
While Jews are such a great presence on the virtual world of social networking sites, we were airbrushed off in the NGS March 2011 magazine graphic of the typical 7th billion man. Jews could have rated a bit over 120 of the seven thousand little person figures that comprise this picture.
I’m looking for a Jewish mole on the face of the world at seven billion. At least NGS could have given us a pimple. Jews don’t even rate mention on the religion chart.
Our coreligionists have adopted some really cute Chinese baby girls. Now, with many Jewishly well educated, some may grow up to be the next Jewish Aimee Semple McPhersons of China. As Sister Aimee said:
With God, I can do all things! But with God and you, and the people who you can interest, by the grace of God, we’re gonna cover the world!
