Raunchy Writers

I get in constant trouble from rabbis and other religious Jews for raunchy writing.

I’ve been kicked out of four shuls for this sin.

How come these same shuls celebrate screenwriters who write R-rated Hollywood movies filled with sex, nudity, and profanity — stuff I’ve never produced (aside from making my one movie WHAT WOMEN WANT in 1996)?

These Orthodox screenwriters of R-rated movies get the odd chiding but nothing like the relentless aggravation I get. They get called to the Torah, they get important positions in the community, they get countless honors precisely because of the R-rated movies they’ve made. They pay their mortgages and their day school bills and their shul bills through writing raunchy movies and TV shows.

Why do I get this grief and they don’t? Because I’m a convert. Because I’m write for my own blog. Because I reveal unpopular things about Jews.
