"Speaking of self-loathing Jews, here is a video with Shmuely Boteach (narcissist extroadinaire) debating Sam Harris on the existance of God.
I so wish this guy would just finally convert to Christianity and stop being such an embarassment!"
"I would be difficult to have any debate with one who has no emunah concerning the existance of a God, and who believe that the Torah is not emet without being provocative at all. For example, if I focused on the Jewish God's obsession with a…"
"Well, you have to remember the times between 6CE-70CE, and it all makes sense. You get the real wackos who make headway into Beit Shammai (think of the USA "Tea Party" group making inroads with the Rebuplicans), aka "Pharisees"…"

"It looks like JC got off the cross and just got vengence against the guy with the mallet before he could nail him with that last spike! And now JC is nailing the dude from behind! "I'll fill you with the holy spirit, all…"
"Remember, Israel was founded by secularlists and atheists. There is still one last atheist kibbutz. (Kibuttim are dying due to the theory behind them). And when the Russian influx came in, you endedup with huge numbers who could not even prove that…"
