I Prefer To Stay Neutral

I don’t feel a party to any of the arguments for and against Orthodox Judaism and arguments within the religion. I prefer to stay neutral. Labels are important and I love the arguments but the map is not the territory. I feel the same way about addiction and 12-step programs. There was never a light bulb moment for me that I had emotional addictions and needed God. Instead, there was just a gradual sense that this 12-step thing worked for me and did things for me that I couldn’t do for myself. I enjoy arguments about Judaism and about addiction and recovery, but I prefer to observe the fights rather than to join them.
