Today, I thought I'd check out the best of the "Jewish Religion Blogs" on the web, according to the Jerusalem Post's Jewish and Israeli Blog Awards.  I thought it would be interesting to see what's out there.  I was, initially, looking for guidance as to how best to direct the development (however organic it may be) of this "Jewish Religion" blog.

WHAT THE FUCK!!!???

According to these standards (which I thought I could trust because some of the other categories honored sites I like) the best three "Jewish Religion Blogs" in the universe are:

This guy These guys, and This asshole 

Clearly "Jewish Religion" means Orthodox, which is fine, but the third guy, both an asshole and a rabbi,  has posted one of the most offensive things I've ever read in my life. 

I cannot believe this. I cannot believe that anyone could consider this a "Jewish Religious" sentiment.  What do you think of Lazer Beams brand of Jewish Religion???

The pink lion becomes a paper tiger

Hashem, you're the greatest. Once again, You've shown us that you run the world. In retrospect, all the activism didn't do a thing. The way You manipulated events to create a security crisis led to the compromise/police demand that the Impurade be held on a limited scope in a confined space in an area that's spiritually contaminated anyway. The result – the whole thing fizzed out with a few dozen demonstrators in an empty stadium, even what the super-liberal Haaretz termed "Poor attendance*". The pink lion has become a paper tiger canary. This is none other than another wonderful lesson in emuna. Thank You, Hashem – everything You do is for the very best.

Gee, I wonder if we'll get this award next year.

Oh, incidentally, the lack of the weekly Torah portion is due to the fact that someone awesome is going to be taking on that task from here on out. I'm excited about this, and you will be too. More on this later…

In the meantime, have a good Shabbat (however you choose to spend it)!
