Is Religion Stringing You Along?

By Dealdoctor --

This story in the NY Times below was beyond weird to me.  Orthodox Jews are taught not to carry things on Sabbath but it seems there is this workaround called an “eruv”.

 Would it be worth $100,000 to you to expand your “eruv”? Did you know one of the worst things about this year’s harsh winter is that it has caused holy havoc to the entire “eruv” system in some cities?

I mean when an “eruv” system collapses it is like finding a porno magazine in a fundamentalist church on Sunday morning where the hymnal should be instead.  Should you hide it under the pew cushion or call an usher or just scream?  OMG’sh!  The real world certainly can collide with religion.

If you think your Christian fundamentalism had you tied up in knots at least you did not have to worry about any Baptist, Pentecostal or Charismatic “eruvs”.  Have you ever felt like religion was “stringing you along?’  This is damn freaking “eruv” stuff is nonsense to the extreme .
