RR: Are you willing to believe that THEIR religious beliefs have something to do with the stands they have taken on this issue? Or is someone being Jewish an important factor only when they are loathsome and offensive?
I'd say they're being true to an orthodox, conservative understanding of Judaism. The Foxmans, Eisners and Weinsteins are reflecting a strain of Judaism that is liberal and hateful towards christianity and traditional morality.

I THINK YOU ARE TELESCOPING DIFFERENT CATEGORIES OF PEOPLE. IS FOXMAN RELIGIOUSLY UN-OBSERVANT? (I DON'T KNOW IF HE IS OR NOT). I WOULD BE WILLING TO WAGER THAT EISER AND WEINSTEIN ARE NOT OBSERVANT AT ALL. THAT MIGHT UNDERLIE THEIR HOSTILITY AND CONTEMPT TOWARD 'TRADITIONAL MORALITY.'
HOWEVER, IF FOXMAN HAS SPENT THE LAST SEVERAL MONTHS VENTING HIS SPLEEN AT "THE PASSION," I SUSPECT IT IS DUE MORE TO HIS PERSONAL EXPERIENCE AS A REFUGEE RATHER THAN AS A PRODUCER OR PATRON OF (DECADENT AND DISGUSTING) ART.
TO LUMP ALL THREE PEOPLE (AND ALL OTHERS LIKE THEM)IN ONE CATEGORY IS NOT RIGHT.
