Rubashkin and Toeva

Had David Weprin, supporter of civil rights for homosexuals, lost his election during the week we read the Torah verses in which homosexuality is called a "Toeva", you can bet the No-Coincidence-Crowd would be crowing. They're great at matching current events with random bible verses, and during the week of that reading connecting Weprin's loss with the Word of God as revealed in Leviticus would have been a layup.

Well, a few hours ago Samuel Rubashkin's appeal was denied, and one of the very last things we read in last week's parsha are the verses in which cheating at business is declared a "Toeva."

Has the No-Coincidence-Crowd made an announcement yet?  Like you, I am anxiously waiting for the NCC to use the results of their favorite parlor game to tell us exactly what God is thinking.
