Somebody gets it

Here’s a post that deserves to be read. David Treppenwitz provides a thoughtful and humane consideration of homosexuality in a blog entry entitled, “Since you forced me to answer… let me just say, uh, ‘No’.” Mr. Treppenwitz describes resisting pressure to blog against Gay Pride Day in Jerusulum. He reports that he got a message asking him to participate in

a media campaign to stop the gay-pride fiasco in J’lem. You are very respected David, and your help would be a major Kiddush Hashem [ed. note: sanctification of G-d’s name]. This worries me more than the Hamas. Could you mention something on Treppenwitz?

Mr. Treppenwitz refused. (Thank you, sir!) His reflections on the topic are instructive. Read them here.
