    Here is an interesting Gallup poll that came my way today from a friend "BC". The poll was taken last month. It shows European Countries Lead World in Distrust of Banks.   Thirteen percent of Greeks said they had confidence in their country's banks or financial institutions in 2012, leading the nearly all-European list of countries where trust in financial institutions was among the worst in the world last year. Seven European Union countries had trust levels lower than 30%, far below the median 55% across 135 countries. Even in the EU's largest funder of the eurozone bailouts, Germany, fewer than four...

    Jewish Scouting leaders are taking a vocal role in efforts to pass a historic resolution that would partially lift a ban on gays in the Boy Scouts of America. In a meeting of the National Jewish Committee on Scouting in February, members voted overwhelmingly in favor of a resolution lifting the BSA’s longstanding ban on gay members. … The resolution would not change the BSA’s ban on gay adult leaders. “I am advocating for complete change and inclusiveness,” NJCOS Chairman A.J. Kreimer told JTA this week. “I’m speaking with other people and as an area president, one of 26 in...
  • Is That Occupy Portland Dancing Around a Golden Calf on May Day?

    Dan Sandini at Daylight Disinfectant recently posted video from the “May Day” protests in Portland, Oregon, and one of them alarmingly shows a group of young individuals dancing around a golden calf. Sandini’s description of the video reads: Warning: Video can not be “unseen.” ”It is useless to resist it,” or so go the lyrics. On May 1 2013, Occupy Portland dragged an idol of a Golden Bull down to O’Bryant Square. Dressed as Egyptian belly dancers they then proceeded to sing and dance about it. You just can’t make this stuff up folks. About three minutes 34 seconds of...

    Link is to an audio class on understanding the sin of the golden calf. How the heck could people who heard G-d speak 40 days prior do such a sin?! The sin of the golden calf takes place within the weekly portion (as divided by Jews) of the Torah that is read this week. Enjoy!

  • Occupy D.C. presents Boehner with a golden calf because he idolizes money or something (VIDEO)

    If the protesters had melted their jewelry in a campfire and crafted a calf made of solid gold, this would have been more impressive. As it is, it seems like a desperate plea for attention now that most of their Occupy brethren across the country have packed up and put away the tents. Based on the video evidence, the calf appears to be of cardboard and golden foil paper. Awesome. Something’s just off with the symbolism of the general gesture, too: In Scripture, the fashioners of the calf were the idolators. That makes sense — given how obsessed Occupiers are...
  • Perfect Balance: Torah, Temple, Physical and Metaphysical

    02/17/2011 7:21:12 AM PST · by Zionist Conspirator · 2 replies
    I am not sure if there is another Torah portion with a pace as frenetic as Ki Tisah. The parshah takes us from celestial heights to the lowest of the lows and back again. Ki Tisah opens with the Temple and its vessels - the purpose of creation. It engages us in the secret of the incense and the secret of Shabbat - the sign of the covenant between G-d and the Jewish People, between the Creator and His Chosen Nation. From these lofty heights, we fall straight into the sin of the Golden Calf. Could there be a more...

    In the throes of an economic crisis and two wars, does the nation want more headlines about a "Pec-tacular" “Buff Bam”? President Obama appears shirtless in a bathing suit on the cover of May issue of The Washingtonian magazine. The magazine's excuse? The pec pic illustrates the #2 reason (out of 26) to love living in the nation’s capital: “Our New Neighbor is Hot.”

    ...Ikons help focus your attention on the person or thing you're praying for. If it's inanimate—possibly spiritual—sometimes an ikon helps. We're physical beings. Sometimes we need something tangible to represent an abstract idea. If you're praying against gossip, which isn't a physical object, sometimes it helps when you get ahold of a tabloid, which is a physical object, and use it to help you focus on the behavior you're trying to not commit. (Just please: Don't buy the tabloid. Borrow one from Grandma. Oh, and while you're at it, ask her to join your prayer group that evening. It'll be...

    As we watch people build a temple in the name of a false prophet, am I the only one who is reminded of the golden calf? The people foolish enough to do so build a temple and altar in his name and there are songs an hymns celebrating his glory. Here is a man who claims to be a Christian merrily violating several pretty important commandments. I am the Lord your God You shall have no other gods before me You shall not make for yourself an idol You shall not make wrongful use of the name of your God...
  • Golden Calf -- Spirituality or Hedonism?

    03/09/2007 5:44:08 AM PST · by APRPEH · 8 replies · 289+ views ^ | for parashas Ki Tissa | Rabbi Zalman Posner
    After the enthusiastic reception of the Ten Commandments, the people, impatient for Moses' descent from the mountain, made themselves a new god -- a Golden Calf. Examine the text carefully1 and perhaps a few observations might be made. Can't we find some exoneration for their idolatry? Moses was delayed in coming down from the mountain, so the people demanded of Aaron a "god that will go before us," for the Moses who led the people from Egypt is gone. Was this not a sincere religious quest for the divine? Was not their rejection of Moses (and all he taught) justified,...

    Commentary ^ | January 2007 | Gabriel Schoenfeld
    Jews, Muslims, and the Democrats Gabriel Schoenfeld January 2007 The 2006 midterm elections confirmed once again a truism of American politics: American Jews remain overwhelmingly devoted to the Democratic party. According to exit polling, the tilt this year was, if anything, even more pronounced than it has been in the past. Some 88 percent of Jewish votes went to Democratic candidates, while a mere 12 percent went to the GOP. Along with this lopsided outcome, a historical extreme, comes the news that the number of Jewish representatives in Congress has itself reached an all-time high. Although Jews represent a marginal...

    Cybercast News Service ^ | December 29, 2006 | Christopher G. Adamo
    The facade is beginning to peel back from the so-called ministry of Southern California Pastor Rick Warren, author of "The Purpose Driven Church" and "The Purpose Driven Life." Unfortunately, many among his ample flock have far too much invested in him, both emotionally and otherwise, to admit their mistakes and cut their losses. Moreover, he certainly faces no possibility of in-depth scrutiny from the "mainstream media," as his brand of "Christianity" poses little or no threat to their liberal social agenda. Yet to the degree that anyone at all questions Warren as anything less than authentic, his response is thoroughly...

    <p>THE DEC. 1 appearance of US Senator Barack Obama at the World AIDS Day summit signals one possible, and hopeful, future for American politics. The summit, hosted by best-selling evangelical preacher Rick Warren, was itself significant; who would have thought 20 years ago that evangelicals, who then barely acknowledged the existence of AIDS, would now be leaders in calling public attention to its ravages -- particularly in Africa?</p>
