Re: The Unmaking of Israel (Robert Wright & Gershom Gorenberg)

I'm struck by the fact that Robert apparently finds it hard to imagine what would be "Jewish" about an Israel with separation of religion and state. Would he find it hard to see what's "Korean"...

Re: The Role of the Orthodox Rabbis

This point of view didn't disappear 20 years ago: it's still pretty common in large parts of the haredi sector. The nature of the anti-Zionism varies, from Neturei Karta people who meet with...

Re: The Unmaking of Israel (Robert Wright & Gershom Gorenberg)

Bloggingheads is usually pretty good at providing balance, but have we had anyone from the center of the Israeli political spectrum since Shmuel Rosner? The other Israeli commentators are pretty...

Re: Sounds Like a Whisper (Matt Duss & Eli Lake)

This is spot on (http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/34259?in=36:46&out=36:58), as anyone who's ever talked to Israeli national security folks can vouch.

Re: Natural Law (Robert Wright & Robert P. George)

Haven't watched this yet, but: Woohoo! Robert P. George! Cartwheels, streamers, etc. Okay, time to watch.

Re: The Yale Woman (Ann Althouse & Eve Tushnet)

Sorry, that was brusque of me.

Sounds like you probably have some great stories there. Some people I know went to a Bundist summer camp called Camp Hemshekh; it's possible they knew your father.

Re: In the Interest of Comity (Matthew Yglesias & Eli Lake)

Woo, fireworks.

Look, you can see why talks between Matt and Eli broke down. Matt got impatient because it looked like Eli was trying to dodge commenting on Netanyahu's motives ("not inside his...

Re: The Yale Woman (Ann Althouse & Eve Tushnet)

Whoa. Clearly Bob Wright reads my comments but is too shy to reply.

Whatever it is, I'm totally psyched to see Eve here and expect to be more so after watching the diavlog.

Re: Values Added: Common Ground (Sarah Posner & Mollie Ziegler Hemingway)

I should've been clearer that I wasn't defending BornAgainDemocrat's position. Actually, the post I really disagreed with was cragger's. (And he's wrong, the Catholic Church does recognize marriages...

Re: Values Added: Common Ground (Sarah Posner & Mollie Ziegler Hemingway)

Yeah, what I'm saying is that liberals can't make a strong argument in favor of extending marriage to gay folks and against simply eliminating government-recognized marriage. Not all liberals favor...

Re: Values Added: Common Ground (Sarah Posner & Mollie Ziegler Hemingway)

Since someone earlier suggested driving Mollie away with abusive comments, let me say that I'm very glad to have her here and I'm a big fan of Get Religion.

Re: Let's Go (David Frum & Jonah Goldberg)

Re: Values Added: Shomer Shabbat (Hanna Rosin & Judith Shulevitz)

Because I believe in matan-Torah at Mount Sinai despite there not being a shred of historical evidence to support it. :p

Less flippantly, I suspect it has something to do with a MacIntyrean desire...

Re: Values Added: Shomer Shabbat (Hanna Rosin & Judith Shulevitz)

Being Orthodox, it was fascinating to see in this diavlog (and from the conversation on Slate) the extent to which our ancient patriarchial religion still dogs our people, long after any plausible...

Re: The Evolution of God: Jewish Edition (Robert Wright & Mark Kleiman)

Also, Kleiman's taxonomy of Jewish hashkafot (roughly, worldviews) is mistaken. The opponents of hasidism are the mitnagdim (lit., opponents); both are subsets of Haredi Judaism (often called...

Re: The Evolution of God: Jewish Edition (Robert Wright & Mark Kleiman)

But there is a Hebrew word for Jewish heresy: kefirah. The Karaites qualify.

Re: Bed Head Edition
