I’m A Righteous Man Because I Don’t Hate People In My Heart, I Hate Them On My Blog!

I have some reflections on the Torah’s injunction not to hate your neighbor in your heart.

I’ve been studying Sefer HaChinuch (the 14th? century book of Jewish education) on Leviticus 19 (the Holiness Code).

Which Jews are we allowed to hate these days? In the Bible, G-d seems to hate the Jews (as well as the goyim) much of the time and He goes around smiting them.

Aren’t we supposed to emulate G-d?

Then the rabbis took the fun out of hating our fellow Jews. They severely restricted the Jews we’re allowed to hate and how we’re allowed to hate them.

What’s the point in being Jewish if you can’t hate on your fellow Jews?

Here’s my "Everything’s Going Wrong" whinge on video.

From my live cam chat:

guest110:  oh a shirt with a collar, what’s the special occasion?
guest110:  the picture is looking much better btw
guest110:  still, the quality is a little like the videos in Myst
YourMoralLeader:  thank you!
YourMoralLeader:  it’s cold
guest110:  you’re cold?
guest110:  oh is that why the extra shirt?
guest110:  got it
guest160:  is this a chat about clothing?
guest110:  so do you know how many of the hits to this site are unique?
guest162:  Why am I always 162? And what am I hearing?
guest110:  are you hearing the mind worms?
guest162:  No, it was Luke. Drawling
guest110:  drawling? 
guest162:  And listening to himself, apparently
guest110:  I’m not getting that audio
guest162:  It’s a conversation about heretics
guest162:  and an angry God
guest110:  that’s always exciting
guest162:  If you’re Moses
guest110:  lots of interesting death involving heretics and an angry God
guest162:  but probably not interesting video
guest110:  I prefer to read about it than watch it
YourMoralLeader:  Which Jews are we allowed to hate these days?
guest162:  Now there’s "music" – does no one else hear it?
guest110:  the ones who publicly humiliate us
YourMoralLeader:  like me?
guest162:  Is this Air Stream:
guest110:  hmmmm
guest110:  good question
guest110:  I’m sure there are those that do think that way
guest110:  do you see yourself as someone who humiliates  other people?
guest162:  Don’t get me started on the Bad Luke who humiliates people
guest110:  or do you justify what you do by saying they did the humiliating thing and you’re just pointing it out
guest110:  and how does that jive with the way you’d like to be?
YourMoralLeader:  Good questions, I don’t have an answer except that I want to do more good than harm with my life and blogging.
guest162:  Great good? Or greated Adsense?
