Tut-tut. The Bible isn’t for reading; its for thumping.

I thought the Hebrew term for retirement was “Boca Raton”.

also there is no such thing as air conditioning in the Bible, so I expect all churches to immediately rip out all of their HVAC systems immediately.

As long as we’re going to parse what is and what is not in the Bible, might as well bring up the notion of usury and Jesus’ commands to give away your money and expect nothing in return.

These fundamentalist types always seem to ignore the stuff Jesus actually said.

In case there is anyone here who is STILL confused as to why the vast majority of American Jews aren’t generally impressed with the (mostly Republican) evangelical community’s support for Israel, this is a great example. Their support for the Jewish state may be a mile wide, but their regard for Jews is still only an inch deep.

Now, now. Pointing out fact-impaired statements from xtian fundy nutjobs is tyranny, donchaknow. You’re the real anti-semite!

My girlfriend says she sits in her counting room all day and spits on her jewelry.

Who Knew?

the general rule is when there’s no Hebrew word for something, it’s a bad idea

Or maybe there’s no Hebrew word for something because it’s not an issue.

For instance, there’s no Hebrew or Yiddish word for the child of an unmarried woman. That’s just a child, like any other child. The word that translates closest to “bastard” only applies to the child of a married woman, fathered by someone other than her husband (even then, husband has the option to claim the child as legitimate if he loves her enough to overlook the infidelity).

Not to nitpick (much), but have to point out that Hogen would be more appropriate than Tzedek (which is known as “justice”, at least in Israeli Hebrew) and is closer to Yashar

And there’s no word in any other language for “machetayneshter” — an important relationship, I’m baffled why it takes a whole sentence to say it in English.

I’m sure Pat Robertson also believes The Merchant of Venice was based on real events too. Fucking bigoted asshole.

When you think about it, Pat Robertson is a grifting leech who just wants suckers to send him money. What does the Bible say about that, Pat? Bloodsucking hyena. There is a Hebrew word for Pat though. Schmuck.

Thank you. I think everyone should adopt this word immediately. Ever since my daughter got married, I’ve wanted a word for that relationship. We don’t see her in-laws often since they live some distance away, but it seems strange to refer to them as though there were no relationship to us.

There are actually quite a few words in Hebrew that would be fitting in describing Robertson. I prefer using two in particular: Alukah Arurah - “Damned Leech”
