Letter to Boston Globe regarding Jackson's "Biblical Advice" article
Jackson's "Biblical Advice" (Globe, Friday November 24) didn't go far enough. The Jewish Scriptures admonish that neither son nor daughter of Israel shall be a Kadesh (Temple prostitute, DEUT. 23:18, I KNGS 14:24, 15:12, 22:46, II KNGS 23:7, JOB 36:14). Shame on an Observant Jew like Lieberman sharing the ticket with a man who prostituted himself in a Buddhist Temple in California and who had a Daley contest ballot counts, when his father stuffed the boxes in Chicago to elect J.F.K.-"I the Lord… visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children onto the third and fourth generations" (EXODES 20:5). He might have added the statement attributed to Jesus "…but I say unto you, that … whosoever shall say to his brother, Racha, shall be in danger of the council…"(which might be best translated as "faggot" Matthew 5:22).
