God Bless the Chief Rabbi


Lord Sacks says some very intelligent things here.

When Christians, Jews and others feel that the ideology of human rights is threatening their freedoms of association and religious practice, a tension is set in motion that is not healthy for society, freedom or Britain. Rather than regard the Pope’s remarks as an inappropriate intervention, we should use them to launch an honest debate on where to draw the line between our freedom as individuals and our freedom as members of communities of faith. One should not be purchased at the cost of the other.

Yes, I think his article was by far the most sensible contribution to the debate over the past day or so.

I would have traded him any day of the week for +Cormac, and twice on Shabbat.

The Chief Rabbi is a superbly erudite religious leader. He is a good man. We Catholics appreciate him very much.
