Too hard on Lieberman?

Said Brian Camenker, founder of the pro-family group Mass Resistance, who attends an Orthodox synagogue in the Boston area: "Sen. Joseph Lieberman, who has the incredible chutzpah to call himself an Orthodox Jew, will desecrate the holy Sabbath to go to work – the U.S. Senate – and vote to force the integration of homosexuality into the U.S. military. He is a shameful disgrace and an embarrassment to Orthodox Jews everywhere."

  • Yes, what is shameful and disgraceful is that this DADT went on for so long and was even instated in the first place.

  • LaBarbera observed:

    • Shame on Joe Lieberman – who professes to adhere to ancient Jewish moral law – for confusing the noble civil rights cause with an agenda that seeks to normalize destructive homosexual behavior. Lieberman is wrong: homosexuality is not the basis for "civil rights," which In the past has been based on unchangeable skin color – not sexual misconduct that can be resisted or changed (as evidenced by thousands of former homosexuals who now live happy lives in accordance with God's will);
    There are no "ex-Blacks"; there are many ex-"gays." This helps explain the difference between President Truman's noble reform to racially integrate African Americans into the military – and President Obama's misguided push for open homosexuals in the military, which is really about pandering to his liberal, pro-"gay" political base.

  • If, in fact, Lieberman claims to be an Orthodox Jew then No, they are correct. Othodox living requires you to adhere strictly to certain laws that govern how you may or may not do things.

  • The church has every right to say what they have said. No one has forced Lieberman to go to any particular church, it was his choice. No one forced him to enter politics or run for office.

    It is Lieberman's own choice to confuse changing mans' law and God's law. Only one is within his power, and if he acts outside of God's law the church is morally bound to call him on it.

    What the church says will have no bearing on secular law ... or even on Lieberman. The rest is between him and his God.

  • I don't have a clue about Jewish "rules" so I won't place blame anywhere but if they are correct and he is being hypocritical it's certainly not being to hard on him. It's their opinion and they are entitled to it.
