Using “religion” to justify one’s bigotry might be the greatest and saddest distortion of a Divine ideal.
Is Judaism racist? Is religion racist? Is G-d racist? If G-d is not racist why did He not create one race? If one is not of your faith, should you not be looking down on them? Is this a racy question? It certainly seems as if most of the racism in this world stems from religion. And how about this: I believe the Torah says that the Jews are the Chosen People… Uh, is everyone else not chosen? Is being Chosen not a racist choice? And why do Jews hate being chosen so much? And what about Zionism?
