Mikey Bear misses us!
Thank you Kay T. for forwarding the above kvetch from that pesky serial whinger Michael Barnett, not someone whose blog we normally follow.
Mikey, no need for you to be intrigued and no, we certainly haven't been leaned upon by anyone or changed any of our views. The simple reason that we have stayed away from this semi-annual "gay moan and gripe" festivity is because it has become boring. Boring for us and boring to our readers. Zehu! Nothing else.
Rabbi Dr Shimon Cowen can, BH, well look after himself and his opinions without requiring any outside help. He is obviously a giant amongst pygmies and a person with courage to put forward the eternal unbending truth of the Torah. (Admittedly, it is sad, that apart from a handful of other rabbis, Rabbi Chaim Ingram comes to mind, the rest of the rabbinate remains shtum on this matter.)
And it is sometimes painful to read criticism of Rabbi Cowen (and AJNWatch) by hypocrites who in private conversations express views on screeching, noisy homosexuals which are no different to ours. (Yes, we get around and hear a lot.)
Sadly many politically-correct nonentities feel that they have no option but to declare their "warm acceptance" of these publicity-seeking, often half-naked, sexually-disturbed weirdos.
But no fear, Rabbi Cowen is a far bigger person than any of them and as a principled Torah-true Talmid-Chacham and intellectual, his views will triumph. No amount of frilly-pink-underpants wearers can ever overcome this reality.
Let the ECAJ, AJN and all the other ABC-XYZs of the community concentrate on those who are truly suffering in silence and really want to be helped and leave the frilly-pink-undies screechers to the accomplished hands of Mikey and his one-man blog.
By the way, Mikey, how did you enjoy the cheese?
