A study by Hebrew university indicates a third of Israeli Conservative rabbis in favor of ordaining homosexual colleagues. When Israeli political clique is permanently embroiled in sexual scandals, the rabbis understandably want more choices at workplace. It became old-fashioned to sexually harass women; gay rabbis can make headlines by harassing males.

Faithless Jews spearhead moral objectivism. Communist Jews destroyed societies in the name of moral idealism, but conservative Jews don’t try to establish new values. They succumb to the pressure of liberal US opinion, thus commonsense Canadians show much less support for gay rabbis. Major Christian churches reject gay priests and expelled scores of high-ranking homosexuals. Christians and Muslims accept that abomination always exists, could never be fully extirpated; Conservative Jews solve the problem by elevating abomination into the moral norm.

Hardly any Conservative believes that the Torah actually intended moral equality of perverts. Rather, they are skeptical of Torah’s divine origin and feel free to modernize the text, ignoring it here and twisting there. Thus ordaining gay rabbis in direct violation of the commandment to purify Jewish nation from homosexuals. Nothing stands between gay rabbis and gay marriages; once Conservatives reject the biblical condemnation of homosexuality, they must logically agree to same-sex marriage and to homosexuals’ right to adopt others’ children.

Hinduism, Buddhism, and Confucianism are silent on homosexuality, but implicitly condemn it as a failure to meet the major societal obligations of familial life and procreation. Conservative rabbis who allow same-sex relations ignore the commandment to be fruitful and multiply. Some accept homosexuality as parallel orientation after the gays establish normal families with women and bear children. But married people who engage in homosexuality violate the injunction against adultery, offend their wives, and perform abomination for pleasure only – clearly unacceptably.

Of all major religions, only Judaism and Islam explicitly prohibit homosexuality. Ataturk understood the importance of sexual morality for religion, thus protected and promoted homosexuals in his drive to uproot Islam. In Egypt, relaxation of anti-gay laws similarly took place when secular government confronted Islam.

Most societies tolerate homosexuality among laypeople, but Conservative and Reform Judaism are the only two major religious movements that accept gay and lesbian priests. These rootless movements have no values to defend and act as political parties: vote for us and do whatever you like, we only need your vote. Just like political parties pander to every audience with senseless, mutually exclusive promises, so the Conservative movement allows local rabbis to act on the wishes of their atheist congregations and either admit or ban gays. Conservative and Reform rabbis impose no demands on the Jews: homosexuality is nice, eating pork acceptable, violation of Sabbath – okay. They redefined Judaism from religion into communal activity where the members only have to participate in parties held for bar mitzvah and high holidays. Their Judaism is hollower than empty eggshell.

By admitting homosexual colleagues, Conservative rabbis do not voice a religious opinion but lower the common denominator of values to expand their movement.
