I am fat, weird and unpopular. I have Narcissistic Personality Disorder. I write parodies that I think are funny but normal people find despicable. I believe I pursue the truth but normal people see my quest as betrayal. As Robert J. Avrech wrote in the foreword to my book on Jewish journalism:
Betrayal fascinates Luke Ford. It’s his life. Luke betrayed his father, a prominent Seventh Day Adventist minister, when Luke converted to Judaism. Luke betrayed his second "father" when he sacrificed his friendship with Dennis Prager to work on an unauthorized biography of his hero. Luke betrayed Judaism when he became lukeford.com, the preeminent journalist covering LA’s sordid, mob-infested porn industry. Luke betrayed his Orthodox synagogue when he lied about his work and told the rabbi he was a "freelance journalist who writes about crime for a Japanese magazine." I know all this first hand because I was and am a member of a shul that kicked him out when the truth of his work in porn came to light. Luke and I sat together in Daf Yomi, the page-a-day Talmud study class, for close to a year. All this is amply and honestly documented in Luke’s second book: XXX-Communicated: A Rebel Without a Shul.
