My wife received an urgent call from her sister in New Jersey (an orthodox Jewish woman living in a orthodox Jewish neighborhood)…
(My wife’s sister…) My boss, the business owner, came over to me today. He demanded from me ‘what do you think of the decision by the US Supreme Court about same-gender “marriage”?’ I didn’t know what to say knowing that one of his children is in a, r”l, same gender relationship (with formal ceremony). But he was in my face, so I answered straightforwardly… ‘According to the Torah, such relationships are prohibited.’
He started screaming at me, “You Jews are so narrow minded. You don’t live in the modern world.” He then stormed off.
His wife, co-owner, came over a few minutes later. “You’ve really upset (the boss) by not being accepting. Why can’t you be accepting like the rest of society?”
I’ve never before had any discussion with the boss and his wife about their children’s relationships or lifestyles. I’ve never been not-accepting or accepting!
Why are they targeting me? I’m afraid for my job!
Shame the religious. Attack the religious. They have a lot of nerve having principles.
