As a Modern Orthodox Jew, I feel complete and utter outrage at the
Blitzing of the NYC Subway System with these "Pre-Trash" bruchures,
telling us we should accept their branch of Christianity (please not
the use of capital letters, I AM acknowledging the religion, but am
tring to make others realize it is not a branch of Judaism.
FIRSTLY, let me say the following: While I do not wish to have this
viewed as my stepping on anyone else's freedom of religion, what about
ours? Besides, my freedom of Free Speech entitles me to say this
clearly, boldly, and loudly, much as america's freedoms of the press
and assembly allow for everyone to writer back and let me have it
should they disagree.
That being said:
1) God should never be for sale (This goes for Kabbalah too).
2) Your brochures are a hinderance to those of us leaving and entering
the Subways in the rain, as they are on the steps and platforms in
various stages of pulpy decomposition, and making a hazardous
condition where we might all end up with G-d sooner than we planned.
3)Your bring shame to the spirirt of the jobs of True missionaries,
such as the J-hovah Witnesses (I won't write out the full name, due to
my religion). THEY merely are there to hand out their reading
materials, and wish us a good trip to work.
4) Jesus, Yeshu, the nig J, however you wish to refer to him, WAS a
Jew. That much is known. 200 Years after his death, the religion of
Christianity began, and those who did believe in his being the true
prophet who would lead the world to salvation went along too. They did
not still call themselves "Jews" becuase THEY NO LONGER WERE. the J4Js
5) No matter what you call yourself, or how "Jewish" you wish to
appear, remember something (It should be easy, its number 3 of "the
"Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of
anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or
that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself
to them, nor serve them. "
(Quite a "cross" to bear, no?.. The very nature of your end defies
your beginning... essentially, you are vegitarians for cheesburgers,
amish for electricity, Windows for Apples... you get the idea)
I respect your decision to be who you will, while I do not understand
it. Respect ours to be who we are. Those of us who have "left the
flock" having been misled or brainwashed, We eagerly await your
return, as we all wait for the true Moshiach. You have been led away,
and the door is always open.
