I offer my sincerest apologies to everyone on OC.net for my post re: the death of Oral Roberts. It was nasty, innappropriate and over the top (even for me).

I didn't find it offensive, though I do agree that it was a bit much. But then, I of all people know that regretfully sometimes we go too far in what we say. I hope you are well this holiday season.

We all sometimes say things we wish we could take back or don't really mean.  I forgive you Tallitot, may the Lord God forgive us all.

I often say things I shouldn't (I seem to have to confess that at every confession).  May God forgive all of us.  I also hope you have a blessed holiday season.

I forgive you for not thinking through the rhetorical and political consequences. Smiley It's never enough to just be right, we must,  at times, realize that truth is better served by discression. Though I confess I do not always live up to this ideal...it is hard to deny the truth, even when you know it is for the greater good.

Happy Hannukah. By the way, on that thread on a "priest" who removed a Menorah...that guy is no priest, he's a black robed "Chemerim" (as orthodox Jews would say). Compare that "priest" with the Orthodox patriarch in Albania who is funding a Mosque with the last money his church has, as a sign of goodwill to Muslims. Now that is a good person. The Menorah is a New Testament Christian Symbol:

Quote
The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.

Revelation 1:20, KJV 1611. Those "candlesticks" are a Menorah. Also Hannukah is mentioned by name directly in the NT as an observed Holiday.

No. He was a priest. Just a priest behaving badly, thats all.

The Menorah is a New Testament Christian Symbol:
Quote

The Hannukah Menorah has nine branches.
