"Asher rusting of of how bad leverage in Merrimack valley is a powerful speaker he is a the Jewish equivalent of father Brian not the same but powerful and benevolent and there's a certain us a certain something that emanates from him which I suppose is the case with all of your mom you know you're good religious leaders if you're good when you're around the rabbi can't help it is the real deal straight out of the street straight out of Brooklyn and super nice guy I feel like I made a new connection I didn't I didn't have time to digest everything I wanted also it didn't seem appropriate because we are talking about the holiday and we covered that one thing I did want to kind of a dress on my own just ask a question there definitely is anti semitism I don't know I guess I'm naive but why why is it is it just simple stupid tribalism is it jealousy because it is an out of the it is thought by some that Jewish folk stand alone businesses have more money in the lawyers and entertainers because from what I see is just because they work hard or is it because the Jews killed Jesus well about that right if that's your B. for Fernandes anti semitic person and that's your beef will the Jews killed Jesus check it out it was part are you guys Christian god's plan it was party your god's plan because Jesus could not have died for your sins if it didn't go down that way right so you can let that one go if you're harboring anti semitism either consciously or unconsciously I kind of would like actually to ask you to examine your sub conscious little bit and see if if you feel a twinge of anything when you hear a rabbi speak in uncomfortable little bit sick examine what that's about maybe go get some therapy or something because the yeah you got to get over that anything I can do to wipe out any anti semitism any kind of racism anything I I I'd like to do it here I mean that's something I can actually do I guess is nothing more to say on that just just don't do it try to examine what your feelings are is it just dumb tribalism our team is better than your team the the patriots are better than the dog on Philadelphia team that kind of I can I think exists just tribalism our people are better than yours I believe the better than yours our team is better than yours we would we be so much better off we would get over that think of all the lives the money the time the materials wasted on tribalism just to distinguish hard drive from the other tribe I think you have to learn as much as you can from the smartest and most most genuine people you can for every believe system I don't like the word religion anymore believe system I like better any belief system learn what you can from it turn to make yourself better I wonder how Doug I wonder how are we here tonight squares with talked because he's all about Doug is all about Christianity and you have to find Jesus or you go to hell right now the whole thing I will say it was pretty interesting for one hour seeing the car it may be even though we didn't speak good see the Christmas tale through different eyes for one hour we were very very specifically speaking of an entire different tale the tale of the Maccabees the tale of we taking the temple and the re dedication of the temple and the traditions that go with that you get it I was gonna get into it enough so that I think well you almost see Christmas the Christmas tale a little differently or just a hint of seen it through someone else's eyes someone elses glasses which is pretty interesting I love the idea as I love having the the rabbi on I could ask the many more questions six one seven two five four ten thirty now obviously I didn't have time to take your calls really because I had so many questions myself if anybody wants to make any sort of comment on it now that would be great and if you would like to share that ours I think is really solid our I thought that it that you know that our gave me the same kind of feeling that you get from Christmas I mean yeah this really benevolent do guy man entity person power force personality in here you also had the lights of the menorah and the lights eliminar give that kind of same feeling of the Christmas tree lights do if you have an open mind it's the same thing because you have Islam another wrinkle in there they're a lot more similarities between Islam Judaism and Christianity than most people would want to acknowledge actually I printed out sixteen here know about Islam you never know when you're gonna need it I don't know okay okay later on by the way I was I was off last night because I didn't feel good some bomber I I was overcome by a wave of the flu flu we floor Lewis I feel I flew for sun and I talked to mark the following the other day when somebody heather was second he was saying well I wish people were sick would stay home is right you know I have to have I have six days I never take any of them why would I come in here and make any everybody else sick nobody wants me to plus it gives some other talk show host a few hours and some cash some Bucks some dollar bill y'all some green some Benjamin's so that's good I still don't feel good I things were going to call and they got a call in before you really hiding on a few can you gonna pull the trigger ahead of time I should have pull the trigger then I don't feel good either tonight can you going through the motions not no I'm not going to the motions my body is going through the motions my mind as far six one six one seven two five four to ten thirty is our number I love that our I try to have because the hours of other religions on you know I I try to have a real cross section of religions from Hinduism Sikhism to turn over witness I'm fascinated by it all fascinated by the differences fascinated by the similarities fascinated why people are so I'm not a call about their beliefs yes and I would ask another's arms if the rabbis listening some we could talk about to take a look take quite awhile what he did Christianity catching on like wildfire really did what was wrong with Judaism at the time who is either lacking or how to bend I would have been distorted it made christiantoday so attractive that that they were fanatical people who would die for die for it and a lot of them right away within like four hundred years after Christ's death I do a lot of the stuff that we have written about Christ was written hundreds of years after and it's just kind of word of mouth so I take it all with a grain of salt do you notice a couple of things that were similar know what thanks dogs believe talking there's relief and rabbis believe no one quite similar Adam know what they're all they're all very tight I myself I keep a little distance from it but I don't reject anything I'm curious really would take a lifetime of talking about it to really figure it out and I haven't figured it out I don't see how have any any benevolent god god I would send you to hell keep you from everlasting life if you just were good just do good you know basically what Jesus what do you do that follow the golden rule I really feel like a real benevolent god would send you to hell because he didn't believe in minutia because you didn't get born again or find Jesus Christ is the same you know okay if you didn't maybe you're wrong it just did you didn't believe it it's not your fault you don't believe it it's kind of gods fault right because all powerful if you don't believe it it's kind of gods fault yes the power to make you believe it the power to give you more evidence he did give you the the the brain of questions and is that questioning that is made humans what they are so that would be strange to use the thing the the power of questioning what you hear it everything else what religion and doesn't seem consistent a lot of inconsistencies and I have a big you know basic inconsistent the inconsistency that nobody can take away not yet the very first paragraph of the Bible right away I have a problem I think it's the first paragraph so it says basically so god created man in his own image so that he could worship them that seems a very I'm god like thing it seems like a nice nice system it is a flaw that god wouldn't have the card game if there is a god the guy gave me the power to ask that question and I'm not getting any answers so right away the bibles flood are you kidding me would god be that narcissistic now that is a human flock fly a god would not have yeah you're telling me this is the book it's got all the facts I need by in it not yet six one seven two five four ten thirties WBZ recognize.
