Just about the time you think you’ve heard everything…
I’ve been beating the ethics drum lately. Doing the right thing has become so out of style that you can now see Orthodox Hasidim Rabbis being arrested for, speaking of style, trading in counterfeit designer handbags.
No kidding. It’s hard not to laugh. Oy vey! Busted for schlepping fake purses?
These guys were involved in some illicit body parts deals deals too—apparently specializing in kidneys.
There are plenty of crooks in business. But worse are crooked clergy and crooked politicians.
I suggest a reading of The Divine Comedy. There is a special place in hell for these guys.
If we don’t get on a moral path in this country, we’re doomed. And I don’t mean we need more self-righteous ‘evangelicals’ telling us how bad abortion is or how the gays are going to corrupt our children. Most evangelicals are a notch from being eligible for a hate group. You’ll find the rest chasing children or trolling public restrooms.
No, I’m talking about good old-fashioned “do the right thing” ethics.
When you see Rabbis going to jail for dealing in black market kidneys, the country IS going to hell in a handbag…
Look around you. Clean up.
I want you to have the names of the Rabbis to spread their shame:
The rabbis were Saul Kassin, 87, chief rabbi of Sharee Zion, a synagogue in Brooklyn, New York; Eliahu Ben Haim, 58, the principal rabbi of Congregation Ohel Yaacob in Deal, New Jersey; Edmond Nahum, 56, of Deal Synagogue in Deal; Mordchai Fish, 56, of Congregation Sheves Achim in Brooklyn; and Lavel Schwartz, 57, Fish’s brother.
Think about it Rabi—people can Google Saul Kassin in 20 years and this article will come up. The internet is forever—oy!
