Prominent Israeli Rabbi says the only point of gentiles is to serve Jews

Stay classy, Rabbi Yosef. Yosef: Gentiles exist only to serve Jews
The sole purpose of non-Jews is to serve Jews, according to Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, the head of Shas’s Council of Torah Sages and a senior Sephardi adjudicator. “Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world – only to serve the People of Israel,” he said in his weekly Saturday night sermon on the laws regarding the actions non-Jews are permitted to perform on Shabbat. According to Yosef, the lives of non-Jews in Israel are safeguarded by divinity, to prevent losses to Jews. “In Israel, death has no dominion over them... With gentiles, it will be like any person – they need to die, but [God] will give them longevity. Why? Imagine that one’s donkey would die, they’d lose their money. This is his servant... That’s why he gets a long life, to work well for this Jew,” Yosef said.

Fox host Brian Kilmeade thinks all terrorists are Muslims

Proving again that there is nothing a conservative can say that will get them fired or sanctioned. And I guess Kilmeade thinks the Unibomber was a Muslim, and Tim McVeigh too. Oh, and the IRA and the Tamil Tigers and the Maoist terrorists of Northern India and the Christian terrorists who blow up abortion clinics and assassinate doctors, all of them must be double-secret Muslims in his world. ThinkProgress -- Fox Host Brian Kilmeade Says ‘All Terrorists Are Muslim’ In Defense Of O’Reilly’s ‘Muslims Killed Us’ Remark
KILMEADE: That debate is almost like our debate on training wheels. That was our debate seven weeks ago. And they can’t handle the give and take of the debate. They were outraged that someone was saying that there was a reason there was a certain group of people that attacked us on 9/11. It wasn’t just one person, it was one religion. Not all Muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslims.

A chaplain and an atheist walk into Afghanistan . . .

A patient, scripture-quoting atheist is assigned to protect a Seventh-Day Adventist chaplain in the field, in Afghanistan. This is today's must read. How is this not already a tv series? This Chaplain Is Protected By God—and by an Atheist--at War - WSJ.com
SANGIN, Afghanistan—They say there are no atheists in foxholes. There's one on the front lines here, though, and the chaplain isn't thrilled about it. Navy Chaplain Terry Moran is steeped in the Bible and believes all of it. His assistant, Religious Programs Specialist 2nd Class Philip Chute, is steeped in the Bible and having none of it. Together they roam this town in Taliban country, comforting the grunts while crossing swords with each other over everything from the power of angels to the wisdom of standing in clear view of enemy snipers. Lt. Moran, 48 years old, preaches about divine protection while 25-year-old RP2 Chute covers the chaplain's back and wishes he were more attentive to the dangers of the here and now. It's a match made in, well, the Pentagon. "He trusts God to keep him safe," says RP2 Chute. "And I'm here just in case that doesn't work out." . . .

In lawsuit against Tenn. mosque, opponents claim Islam is not a religion

This is the problem (and goal) of pushing the lie that America is a Christian nation founded by men who were all Jesus-worshiping Christians. It makes us intolerant to other religions and is pretty much the exact opposite of what the Founding Fathers said and what the Constitution lays out. Legitimacy of Islam at heart of Tenn. mosque suit | APP.com | Asbury Park Press
My God is better than your God. That's the dispute at the heart of recent hearings in a lawsuit aimed at derailing the new Islamic Center of Murfreesboro. What started as a zoning issue has turned into a fight over theology and the role of government in recognizing religion. Mosque opponents say that Islam is not a real religion. They argued in a Rutherford County courthouse last week that the world's second-largest faith, with its 1.6 billion followers, is actually a political movement. Opponents say local Muslims want to replace the Constitution with an Islamic legal code called Shariah law. . . . "Shariah law is pure sedition," said Brandon in his opening statement Monday. Local officials said that of course Islam is a religion. They say the proposed mosque is like any other house of worship. Constitutional scholars say it isn't the government's business to decide which faiths are legitimate and which are not. Local Muslims say the claim about Shariah law and political conspiracies is nonsense. "I have been a Muslim all my life, and I've never heard about Shariah law," said Lema Sbentaty, a Middle Tennessee State University student who attended part of the hearings last week. "If this was true, who would want to be a Muslim?"
