MOST people by now will be aware of my non alignment with the Faith Industry regardless of your choice of calling. Praying to ask that the laws of the universe be annulled for a particular petitioner is not my idea of facing up to the music and getting off your arse and getting on with life in a materialistic manner. Blind faith has few rewards, Hope which is desire and expectation rolled into one; is achieved through using logic and commonsense. However, a sense of Charity is to be expected from all mankind toward all creatures in crisis or beyond any chance of helping thereselves, which brings me back to the Rev Rabbi D Slavin, Who is a leader within the Orthodox Jewish religion Whose exploits were brought to light on my post dated Sept 25 06.(Click back).
At the cost of $19,800.00 two Sydney Councils are forking out to pay for the first KOSHER PEDESTRIAN CROSSING, Because pressing a button on the sabbath-the period of rest between sunset on Friday and sunset on Saturday- is considered a breach of religious law by orthodox Jews, (see my post Sept 25.)
I am suggesting that this bunch of religious crackpots at their future Knee bending sessions at their synogogue pass the chalice around until sufficient cash is collected in order to reimburse their benefactors, or be given to a deserving charity. The extensive list of 'donts' on the Sabbath is endless, like driving, cooking, carrying, handling money(ha ha), using electrical and mechanical devices. Maybe dressing oneself, opening doors, turning on taps(faucets) and pressing the toilet flush have been overlooked, so what in this persons crazy mind is so Bloody different about pressing the button on a pedestrian crossing?
I say Shame on you Rabbi Slavin, you are an absolute Thieving Nutter. VEST.
