Remember the answer given by Al Goldstein, the founder of the pornographic Screw magazine, when he was asked by Jewish interviewer Luke Ford why the porn industry contained so many Jews? “The only reason that Jews are in pornography is that we think that Christ sucks. Catholicism sucks. We don’t believe in authoritarianism.”
When asked, “What does it mean to you to be a Jew?” and “Do you believe in God?” Goldstein replied with yet another reiteration of our opening dichotomy. In one breath: “I believe in me. I’m God. . . . God is your need to believe in some super being. I am the super being. I am your God, admit it.” And yet, in the next breath he says: “Fuck God. . . . We’re random. We’re the fleas on the ass of a dog.”
The best solution to Jewish problems is not psychiatry or yoga but rather living within the Torah Corral.
