    By Dennis Prager

    November 3, 2010 | 5:04 pm

    If my mail is any indication, I suspect I aroused considerably more anger among Jews by arguing that man is not basically good (and that the belief in man’s innate goodness is neither rational nor Jewish) than I would have had I argued that there is no God.

    Ask most Jews if they believe that people are basically good and you are likely to get a positive response.
