Governments will always seek to consolidate ever greater chunks of power. That is the nature of government as it is the nature of man. Jews and non-Jews must always be on guard against those who seek to curtail freedom in the name of allegedly free stuffhigher and ever higher taxes is the price for government entitelements.
Seraphic Secret strongly urges our friends in the Catholic communityactually, all our non-Jewish friendsto read The Book of Esther. Because at this very moment President Obama is asserting that Catholics are different.
And you are. You believe in a power higher than Obama.

May we be so lucky that at some future date people will look back and speculate that Obama was only a myth as well.
Thank you for this post.
A Jewish friend of mine gave me some of those tasty treats sent to her by her Grandma Gruber one year. When my friend told her Grandma how much I liked them, next Purim, Grandma sent her an extra box of them, just for me. ;o)
Good article. Thank you for posting it.
I’ve never heard that Esther was fictitious. Where’d you get that? Jus curious.
Look, I don't want to get in a big to-do over this right now, but you may rest assured that all the "correct" Biblical scholars insist that Megillat 'Ester is a historical fable. Just look in any modern Bible with commentary or look online. Look up "Book of Esther" on Wikipedia.
Like I said, it's most people everywhere, very much including non-Orthodox Jews (some of whom don't even celebrate Purim, or at least didn't used to).
This is the natural result of declaring the opening chapters of the Torah mythology adapted from Babylonia and Canaan.
OK, ZC. I’m no scholar myself: far from it. I was just wondering if this view were confined to the radical de-mythologizers, or if it were more widespread. You answered that adequately. Thank you.
