    By Brad A. Greenberg

    First, let me be clear: The Rev. Jeremiah Wright is a bad man, but he’s not that bad a man. (Apologies to King David.) The alleged affair refers to Wright, the now notorious former pastor to Barack Obama whose black liberation theology manifest itself in anti-American tirades from... read on

    This morning seven years ago forever changed our world. I don’t think anyone has viewed religion the same since.

    There were a lot of religious currents flowing out from Ground Zero; here’s one image I know we’ve all seen.

  • Barbie and the Jews

    I know Peter Coyote as head of the Jewish Justice League in “Hebrew Hammer.” Not a good movie, but worthy a rental. A more resonant film on Coyote’s resume—also about the American Jewish experience—is “The Tribe.” The documentary traces the Jewish people from Abraham to Sacha Baron... read on

  • Temple 420’s Craig X Rubin lives!

    Well, the cat is out of the bag.

    After I blogged Sunday about Temple 420, where Craig X Rubin, a Jewish convert to Christianity, preaches that marijuana is a sacrament that carries our prays to God and has the ability to alleviate much of the world’s resource scarcity, I got in... read on

  • Congressman compares Obama to Jesus, Palin to Pontius Pilate

    It appears U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen reads Politico.com. In the above video, in which Cohen—yeah, that Steve Cohen—compares Barack Obama to Jesus and vice-president hopeful Sarah Palin to Pontius Pilate.

  • Obama’s Jewish problem: 300 rabbis endorse him *

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    September 10, 2008 | 3:13 pm

    As The Web Guy pointed out in the post about the Alliance Defense Fund challenging preacher to sermonize on political candidates, 300 rabbis have signed a list showing their support for Barack Obama.

    I’m not sure what the legal implications are here—I believe ministers can back... read on

  • Answering Hitchens on moral superiority

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    September 10, 2008 | 2:41 pm

    By now, everyone knows the name Christopher Hitchens. That’s an impressive feat for a print journalist not named Woodward or Bernstein or at least Hersh. But Hitchens notoriety—and to the God-fearing it is notoriety—stems from his membership in the corps of New Atheists. One of... read on

Since launching the blog in 2007, I’ve referred to myself as “a God-fearing Christian with devilishly good Jewish looks.” The description, I’d say, is an accurate one,...
