Hoping that your friend finds his way back (and I would think that a homosexual Jew is off the derech no matter if he keeps shabbos and wears a yarmulkeh). But that has nothing to do with a Jewish entertainer promoting a homosexual lifestyle. Yes, we should call him out for it and urge him to take it down. He doesn't care? That's his problem, not ours. 

The fact that you posted here before reaching out personally proves that you don't actually have lishma reasons for posting.

Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

The ignorance and idiocy of this comment just goes to show how much credence people should give your stupid, self-righteous, holier-than-though, religious rantings on this website.


To be clear, I'm not disagreeing with many of the sentiments expressed in this thread, just with the ignorance and callousness of many of the posts here.

Fascinating points made by the Rebbe. That said, it has nothing to do with this.

The discussion here is not about how someone with homosexual tendencies deals with the problem. The issue is about an entertainer promoting such values by giving presents and a hotel night to a homosexual "couple" for Valentines day because it brightens their day, is great for humanity, etc.

Completely wrong, against halacha, and inconsiderate to the his viewership. Again, nothing to do with that letter.
That being said, just change the channel. This isn't how you're going to effect positive change.
Sounds like a great democratic approach, but Jews that care don't just "change the channel". They make a deal about it. G-d decides results.

I wouldn't be so bold to say that I am totally lishma.
As far as if it is right to make a ruckus about it, well...that much I am pretty sure of.

That's quite polarizing. If anyone violates one aveirah, even bemaizid, is otd?

Actually nm, I know what you'll say. It's still polarizing though, although you can argue that Judaism is polarizing

Interesting. You agree to the sentiments but hate the attitude of many of the posts here....feel free to specify which ones.

As far as my statement that a Jew who is homosexualy active isn't really on the derech, can you highlight exactly how that is wrong or self-righteous?

I didn't mean someone who succumbs once. I am talking about someone who is homosexualy active
If a man who keeps shabbos intermarries, would you consider him on the derech?

Not a very Jewish thing to say. But I digress.

They make a deal about - just not on DDF  ;)

Take a big ad out in all the papers (if they let you) but the persistent posting here is not doing anyone any good. @Dan is trying to change the channel and you keep putting it back but it's his tv...
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Lets hope Dan is better than owning a TV...anyway, nothing wrong with making a deal about it on DDF. First off, I am sure he will hear about it pretty fast, second advertising costs plenty

LOL. I was waiting to see how long it would take for the immaturity to strike.
Didn't disappoint.

Why are you so God-d**m judgemental? This is a recurring theme I've seen with your posts, you seem to think that God has given you a special job to make sure every other Jew lives their lives according to your brand of Judaism and what you think halacha says. It's very clear though that you don't really the depth of knowledge and understanding of halacha that you think you do. Your inability to understand and accept other people's views and opinions is why you'll continue to clash with other people. Your posts lead me to believe that you don't actually want to change anyone's mind about anything, you just want to be right. And that's why you'll continue being wrong.
