Rabbi vs. common sense 1:0 Mittwoch, 13. Dezember 2006, 22:13:38

This story is hilarious:

This week we were treated to the spectacle of an easily offended and highly offensive rabbi who walked into an airport, gazed upon Christmas trees all around him and suddenly was overwhelmed with an immense, and apparently irresistible, urge to sue the management of the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport because nowhere among all the Christmas trees was a single menorah. Rabbi Elazar Bogomilsky of the Chabad-Lubavitch movement of Seattle even delivered to the airport's management a draft of a lawsuit he would file if they didn't sprinkle menorahs around the Christmas trees.

I guess there are fundamentalist freaks in every religion. But a rabbi throwing a tantrum is arguably less dangerous than an islamist throwing bombs.
