Reb Eric Yoffie, Reb Arthur Waskow, and Me
Earlier today I committed a dangerous act: I jumped in and, unasked, defended my colleague, the Green Party activist, Lorna Salzman, on a listserv. To do so, I spoke my mind to Reb Arthur Waskow--someone whom I know disagrees with me.
I rather loved Reb Arthur's early work, such as "Godwrestling;" he also loved my early literary and pre-2001 political and religious work. While I may also now disagree with him, this does not mean that he is my "enemy." It does mean that I may have to "wrestle" with him as Jacob once wrestled with both "God and humanity."
Lorna has been exposing the Islamification of the Green Party and I have written about this with her expert guidance. (These articles are posted on my website). Since then, I am one of the people who have been lucky enough to receive her very intelligent, passionate, and, alas, sometimes rather long postings.
