Dear R.J. Moeller,

You’re going to have to forgive me but I’m still writing away at another of my epic, interfaith list posts. “Judeo-Christian Values For Secularists And Space Travelers: 7 Key Ideas For Understanding the Bible Like a Grown-Up,” recounting some of the key points from the first of your “Ask a Jew” events with Dennis Prager and Hugh Hewitt, still needs more time in the writing oven. I’m at a little over 3000 words, and it’s about 80% of the way there but I’m not sure that I’ll have the time to finish before the event this Sunday.

So I thought just in case I don’t finish before the event I’d do this post here, insisting that anyone on the fence about whether they should attend the event on Sunday  should stop wallowing in doubt and just go ahead and go. The debut back in March was a tremendously enlightening, entertaining event that people of all faith traditions should find engaging. You, Hugh, and Dennis are doing such important work bringing people together across religious traditions.

Good luck with #3,

David

P.S. Have you seen this week’s Prager University video that explains how Europeans learned the wrong lesson from World War II, resulting in an ideological rejection of nationalism, and therefore an antipathy to the Jewish state? I embedded above. Prager U is really on a roll — this is another one I’ll definitely be laying on my Democrat friends and family who don’t understand why a non-Jew should be concerned about Israel.

In general, the talk about inter-faith dialogue gives me the heebee jeebies, but not for the reasons most people think. The point being, the inter-faith bandwagon has been co-opted to demonstrate how Islam and Judaism/Christianity can bridge differences. Never and never. In reality, this is absolute balderdash, as evidenced within - http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/07/13/islam-blood-a-groundbreaking-policy-paper-contained-herein-the-world-stands-on-a-precipice-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki-109/

However, even though there are indeed theological differences between Jews and Christians, there are in fact more than enough commonalities. In the main, most Christians realize that without Judaism there would be no Jesus, as Jesus was a Jew!

In any case, because both religions are the antithesis of Islam, a religious/political construct designed around the SUBMISSION of all infidels - chiefly, Jews and Christians - the notion of banding together could not be more urgent.

But don't expect Demsters to jump on board, as their "religion" is leftism!
