Rabbi Shmuley + David Prager’s Botswana Roadside Debate Over Gays and Abortion

Rabbi Shmuley, the fella Michael Jackson told secrets to, went to Botswana over Thanksgiving with Dennis Prager, the conservative pundit, for something called Rock of Africa. It was the last place we expected a videotaped debate over gays, Rick Warren, and religion to go down.

“Gay marriage is one of the great boogeymen of our time,” says Shmuley, rumbling down a street, before launching into an attack on evangelical Christians in America: “Why has their influence become marginal now in the States? Answer: These two issues. People are just tired of hearing abortion and gay marriage. … What Joel Osteen, and what Rick Warren is doing, they’re showing Christianity is more than just talking about gays, and they’re being successful at it.”

Prager, for one, DOES NOT AGREE. Hahahaha.

    I like this debate. Nothing derogatory. Just careful thought.

    Check your headline – it’s Dennis, not David. I’m so tired of your mistakes.

    The Rabbi forgot to mention that Gay Rights and Abortion are the two biggest fundraising issues for the Radical so-called “Religious” Right. Why ignore the goose (or geese) that unwilling lays the golden eggs for these un-christian rabble-rousers?

    I swear, you will always find more of those kind of “christians” (and I use the word sparingly) at all sorts of mob inspired lynch-parties rather than find them at a homeless charity benefit (unless they could take 30% off the top) or at a GLBT civil rights rally (unless they’re holding GOD HATES FAGS signs). …Guess on who’s side Jesus would be on? …It’s certainly wouldn’t be theirs.

    Historically, Christianity has been, and continues to be, a failed (and dangerous) social experiment. Time to move on. Ethics without the irrational yoke of religion is the only true and honest form of morality.
