In an interesting article, Why are Jews liberal?, Dennis Prager observes:
Despite their secularism, Jews may be the most religious ethnic group in the world. The problem is that their religion is rarely Judaism; rather it is every ‘ism’ of the Left. These include liberalism, socialism, feminism, Marxism and environmentalism. Jews involved in these movements believe in them with the same ideological fervor and same suspension of critical reason with which many religious people believe in their religion. It is therefore usually as hard to shake a liberal Jew’s belief in the Left and in the Democratic Party as it is to shake an evangelical Christian’s belief in Christianity. The big difference, however, is that the Christian believer acknowledges his Christianity is a belief, whereas the believer in liberalism views his belief as entirely the product of rational inquiry.
I couldn’t find any other items in the asserted Explaining Jews series (Parts I through IV). Regardless… finally. The smart-assery. Which falls right in line with the above,
Schlichter suggests that liberals might read a book that is not “Handmaid’s Tale,” “White Fragility” or something with “Harry Potter” in the title. To which someone responds:
“The Handmaid’s Tale” is “Left Behind” for secularists.
