Rabbi: No. Cindy: Can I be a Jew? Rabbi: You really want this? Sincerely? Not ‘cause this one’s trying to blackmail me for something stupid when I was 19 or for broccoli with your dinner? What is this for you? Cindy: Honestly, I think I found my people. I was raised in a church where I was told to believe and pray. And if I was bad, I’d go to hell. And if I was good, I’d go to heaven. And if I’d ask Jesus, he’d forgive me and that was that. And here y’all are sayin’ ain’t no hell. Ain’t sure about heaven. And if you do something wrong, you got to figure it out yourself. And as far as God’s concerned, it’s your job to keep asking questions and to keep learning and to keep arguing. It’s like a verb. It’s like … you do God. And that’s a lot of work, but I think I’m in, as least as far as I can see it. I mean, maybe I’ll learn more and say fuck the whole thing, I mean, but I wanna learn more, and I think I gotta be in it to do that. You know… Does that make sense? Shit, did I just talk myself out of it? Rabbi: Ask me again. Cindy: Can I be a Jew? Rabbi: Yes. I cried so hard during this scene. First of all, this is beautiful. Second of all, as a contextual note, the rabbi said no for a reason. In Jewish conversion, one of the steps is that you must be discouraged at least three times. This comes from the story of Ruth, where Naomi told her not to follow her back to the Jewish tribe three times before giving in. Third of all, this is beautiful. Adrienne KILLED it in those scenes. I wept with her! “It’s like a verb.” She wants to work on her faith continuously and that was gorgeous and so honest. THIS WAS SO IMPORTANT DO U UNDERSTAND. We aren’t a people who actively convert people. You’ll never see a Jewish person try to convert you. We believe in everyone’s right to believe what they want. But it was so nice to see someone who wasn’t raised in it be able to see value in my faith. I have never seen anything like that on tv before Not only that?? Its one of the only times I’ve ever seen Judaism The Faith and Religion ever actually articulated on screen. What do we believe? We believe that You Choose To Do God. Thats why we’re the Chosen People - because we Chose to Opt In To Doing God this particular way. I have never in my life before seen any form of media EVER express what Jews ACTUALLY BELIEVE ABOUT THE UNIVERSE out loud but OITNB did. And when people ask me? I always throw them here. Because it’s dead on. You do God (Jewishly) and you have to choose it. That’s what we believe. That’s it. Thats the entire thing. And this is the only time we have EVER had ANY representation and I will cherish it always. And for those of you who didn’t see the show? She got to bathe in a mikvah equivalent and convert fully so yes, Cindy is as Jewish as the whitest Ashkenazi Jew. More, because according to the sages, the convert is to be praised for their choice and their dedication. And as such, any children she has will be Jewish too. <3 Love for Cindy. Love to any religious Jews out there who feel unseen in media (you’re right, we aren’t seen). Love for any converts out there who don’t feel Jewish enough (you are - no matter what branch you converted in). Extra love for all my Jews of Color (no addendum - just love to you all period). Stay strong out there yall. Write yourselves into some stories and talk about our faith okay? We deserve to be seen and known, even if we aren’t converting. Demystification is part of the fight against antisemitism. All of this, but ALSOit’s so rare to see black people get to be any other religion of Baptist Christian. Or to even talk about that not all of us believe in God in the way we’re been taught. Most of what I’ve learned about Judaism I learned through the Jewish bloggers I’ve found here like @prismatic-bell @realsadjewishhours and @wetwareproblem among others, but even as an agnostic black woman, I was just as happy to see Cindy find her own way, and even happier to hear that they actually did right with the conversion process this time. And @dancinbutterfly’s last line is why, when my rabbi said I should go to rabbinic school, I said…..no.Rabbi means teacher, and there are a ton of good Jewish teachers of Jews out there. But there aren’t so many Jewish teachers of gentiles. It’s why I work at cons under the name Oy Vay Productions. I am like you, except where I’m not, and where I’m not should not have to be frightening or mysterious to you. And then, when someone is all “well the Jews are a bunch of wealthy lizards,” you can remember me, think of me teaching you not just about anime but about the fact that Jews are just people out here doing how we do, and instead of “that seems possibly incorrect but I don’t know enough about Jews to dispute it,” you can say “that is not true, I have met and been befriended by a Jew, shared a meal and a class talked, and I know better.”I do my teaching by being a loud and proud Jew who is out here doing G-d an living my life.

HUMANDoD Hukuman mati oleh gajah adalah suatu metode eksekusi yang selama ribuan tahun telah dilaksanakan di Asia Selatan dan Tenggara, khususnya di India. Gajah Asia, digunakan untuk meremukkan, menghancurkan, atau menyiksa tawanan di depan umum. Gajah-gajah tersebut telah dilatih sehingga mampu untuk langsung membunuh atau terlebih dulu menyiksa korbannya pelan-pelan. Metode ini pada zaman dahulu sering membuat ngeri orang-orang Eropa yang datang ke Asia. Banyak jurnal dan catatan yang dibuat oleh orang Eropa mengenai metode ini. Ketika bangsa Eropa menjajah bangsa-bangsa Asia, cara ini mulai dilarang. Di Eropa sendiri, bangsa Romawi dan Carthage pernah menggunakan cara ini untuk menghukum para prajurit yang memberontak. Beberapa catatan sejarah mengenai hukuman mati ini salah satunya berasal dari seorang Kaisar Sassanid (Persia) bernama Khosrau II, yang memiliki 3.000 istri dan 12.000 budak wanita. Suatu hari menginginkan Hadiqah (putri dari Na’aman) untuk dijadikan istri. Namun Na’man (yang beragama Kristen) tak mau putrinya memasuki agama Zoroaster. Karena penolakan ini, Na’man pun dihukum dengan cara diinjak oleh gajah sampai mati. Rabbi Petachiah, seorang pengelana dari Ratisbon, melaporkan eksekusi oleh gajah dilakukan di Mesopotamia utara yang saat itu dikuasai oleh Seljuk. Di sana, ketika Sultan sudah menyatakan hukuman mati untuk seseorang, maka ada orang-orang yang akan berkata pada gajah, “orang ini bersalah.” Gajah itu lalu akan mengambil sang korban dengan mulutnya, melemparkannya tinggi-tinggi dan membunuhnya. Pelaut Inggris bernama Robert Knox pada tahun 1681 pernah ditawan di Sri Lanka. Di sana dia menyaksikan eksekusi dengan memakai gajah. Knox mengatakan bahwa gajahnya memakai suatu besi dengan tiga ujung tajam di gadingnya. Gajah itu lalu menusuk korbannya dengan besi itu dan mengacak-acak organ tubuh sang korban. Gajah juga digunakan sebagai alat hukuman mati di Burma, juga di Kerajaan Champa. Sedangkan di Kerajaan Siam, gajah-gajah dilatih untuk melempar korban ke udara sebelum menginjak mereka sampai mati.

He said this isn’t even talking about homosexuality. That the bible never actually says homosexuality is wrong. What that passage means is this: Women were treated as subservient and it that you shouldn’t treat other men as subservient, like they are beneath you. It is not talking about homosexuality. If it was, it would say it outright since the bible lists other things outright. I take the word of a monk who have studied the bible extensively more than a self proclaimed Christian. The above text, I would like to point out is from the point of view of this translation of the original Hebrew. I spoke with my cousin’s rabbi on the matter and his response was different, saying that it was a mistranslation. See, the true translation says that a man shall not lie with another in the bed of a woman, which is to say, the Hebrews had a shit ton of rules about when a man was or was not allowed in a woman’s bed and private quarters (including, if she didn’t want you there, you weren’t allowed there. Hebrew women were also allowed to divorce their husbands and the image of the ‘oppressive Hebrew people’ is an image that was propogated by Christianity which, historically speaking, doesn’t treat the Jewish people too well and liked to paint them as being rather barbaric and backwards and cultish with their traditions, which, another piece of fun info, their traditions were one of the main reasons why the Jewish people were less likely, in medieval times, to die of the plague. Because washing your hands and avoiding the dead and vermin and the like was a lot of help. Of course the Christians persecuted them for not dying but that’s another matter. I’m sidetracked). So the verse is literally saying ‘Don’t fuck in some lady’s bed because that’s just goddamn rude’ Also, whenever a Christian brings the book of Leviticus up, you should feel free to point out that these are rules that were given to make the Hebrew people prepared for when the son of God came to earth. In Christianity, it’s believed the son of God was Jesus. So by following the rules set in Leviticus or pushing them as things we should follow, they’re saying that Jesus was not the son of God, and that Jesus did not, in fact, die for our sins. Jewish people believe, in their faith, that the son of God hasn’t yet been born, so many choose to follow these rules. Most people of course roll their eyes when I explain the translation of the verse (full breakdown found here) but it’s always fun to point out the nature of the rules in Leviticus and the implications of following them.  I’m a theology student and I am on the verge of crying because of how accurate this commentary is. Historical context is simultaneously the most interesting and most important part of interpreting any texts.  Most religious people seem to base their beliefs on things that are severely mistranslated. I wish they would do their research before using the bible for hate. I studied theology extensively and was going to become a theologist until I switched majors. The above commentary is 100% accurate and what I try to stress in a lot if conversations with Bible Thumpers. Jesus also affirms the homosexual relationship between the Roman Centurion and his “slave”. The particular Greek word used to refer to this special slave was “pais”. Greek language studies and contexts show that a “pais” was a male love slave. Regular slaves were called “dolos”. The Centurion makes this distinction clearly when he asks Jesus to heal his slave (pais), and then to prove his status he tells Jesus that his slaves (dolos) go when he tells them to. But this slave (pais) was special. He was the Centurion’s lover. Hearing this, Jesus was so amazed he says he had not found ANYONE ELSE who had such great faith. He then blesses the Centurion and heals his male lover. Matthew 8:5-13 THIS IS WHAT THE BIBLE REALLY TEACHES ABOUT SAME SEX COUPLES. In short, the English adaptation is a mistranslated farce. ^^^^this reblogging for the comments ^^^^^^ EXCUSE ME WHILE I REBLOG THIS FIFTY MILLION TIMES : "If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of death; their blood shall be upon them." -Leviticus 20:13 The Scripture is clear.

They did not lose the right to marry in Texas, individual clergy simply maintain the right to refuse to officiate a ceremony. Government officials are not refusing to marry anyone and nobody’s legal rights are being taken away.

That entire headline is complete bullshit. </p>
