Two great events I will not be attending

Why Are Jews Liberals? Book Discussion with Norman Podhoretz
November 9, 2009, 12:00 - 1:30 PM - Hudson Institute

Attention GOP-Jews: I will bet you 10 dollars the answer to the title question is not: "Because they are a bunch of self-hating, modern, secular, humanist, know-nothing, morons."

At least part of the real answer, no doubt, is contained in the title of this other event I will not be attending, which coincidently is also taking place today

The Victory of the Cross: How Spiritual Renewal Helped Topple the Berlin Wall
Presenter: Newt Gingrich, AEI
November 9, 2009, 2:00 -3:300 PM - American Enterprise Institute

See? The sort-of-sick idea that paying fealty to Christianity, or its prejudices, restrictions, and superstitions, had something significant to do with the collapse of Communism is certainly part of the reason why Jews who know history continue to cast their lot with the theologically-neutral blessings of liberalism.
