God Loves You, Baby

Luke Ford writes:

Have you ever heard a Jew talk that way?

I have not. If we heard a Jew talk that way, we’d send him for psychological help, notes Dennis Prager.

So why don’t Jews talk that way?

The Torah has a lot about love in it. God loves Israel. We’re commanded to love God, to love our neighbor as we love ourselves.

I think I know why Jews don’t talk this way. Because Christians do.

I heard so much about “God loves you!” growing up as a Christian, that I never want to hear it again.

Jews living in Christian lands hear so much Christian love talk, faith talk, charity talk, that they never want to talk this way. The pragmatic concrete practical Jewish mind is repelled by this Hellenic airy fairy talk.
