Call in to speak with the host
Anti-Semites and others [whether it be radical Atheists, self-hating Jews, Palestinianism or whatever] have misinterpreted the term "chosen people", which is nowhere to be found in Scripture. For a long time, it has been claimed that the idea of Jews being the "chosen people", as outlined by the Torah, is really a Supremacist ideology. In fact, Reconstructionist Judaism has done all it can to reject notions of "chosen people." Tonight, I will demonstrate how that is flimsy logic. "Chosen", in that context, does not mean better or superior. It means recieving a special mission. But those, who severly misinterpret the text should know that, using their own flimsy "logic," the Torah is not Jewish Supremacist. It is Levite Supremacist, as I will demonstrate how the Levites were chosen for a special misison among Israel; just as the people Israel were chosen for a special mission from G-d.
It's good to talk.
