Just in time for pesach: JTS to stop passing over gays

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 35Today, just three months after The Committee on Jewish Law and Standards voted to ease gay restrictions, the Jewish Theological Seminary announced that it will begin accepting LGBT students into its rabbinical and cantorial schools.

Wow, support for gay rabbis! Progressive! But hey, would we expect anything but the finest from those who have given us the potato latke, the bagel, and the corned beef on rye? We think not!

And that's not all: Be sure to keep an eye out in the coming days for a similar announcement from various conservative Christian sects, who are expected to reveal their new belief that under the right circumstances, gays and lesbians are fit to contract rabies or make out with rabbits. After all, would we expect anything less from those who have given us so many ulcers?
