Catholic Whispers about a Jewish Musician
Rocco Palmo of Whispers in the Loggia is normally busy giving us all the very latest Catholic gossip – sometimes almost before it happens. He must be a big fan of Matisyahu, as he has broken into his usual non-stop news-gathering to give his musical hero’s album a plug.
We now interrupt our normal programming for this special announcement: G-d's favorite Reggae singer has released his second album.
Rocco knows his fellow Catholics.
To think: a Hasidim of Crown Heights singing the music of Jamaica.... That sound you hear: the heads of SSPXers, exploding.
SSPXers are, of course, members of the Society of St Pius X, who reject the teaching of the Catholic Church since the Second Vatican Council, like Nostra Aetate, which marked a major change in Catholic attitudes to Jews.
Actually, it doesn’t take much to make the heads of such people explode.
Also, guaranteed to make a few other heads explode, if they read it:
For example, one Matisyahu track from his first album -- Aish Tamid -- is "about the destruction of the Temple, and the eventual building up of the Third Temple that [Jews] are waiting for." And, to an outsider, it's absolutely glorious....
For Christian anti-Semites, whether they lean to the far right, like SSPX, or the far left, like Sabeel, whose liberation theology is manured with Marxism, a singer like Matisyahu will cause explosions of the head. Not because of his music, which is excellent, but because the singer is a deeply religious member of a certain People.
But, really think you would be best served if you added a word verification code on all your comment posts. This EZ to do step will really cut down on all the spam comments.
Just my two cents!
