Q: “Butch, you’re a Jew. How do you reconcile your own beliefs with those of your wife, Marlene?”
A: “Easy. Jesus of Nazareth was a learned rabbi, the rabbi from Nazareth. And, as the Romans called him, The King of the Jews. They gave him a crown of thorns to wear to mock him as that king.
“If everyone believed in the words and followed the actions of the rabbi of Nazareth, the world would be a truly wonderful place.”
An added answer from Robert Tanenbaum:
“And here, let me say, most of mentors, extraordinary men of ethcs and values, were Jesuits. I see no problem between the religions. Butch doesn’t either.”
Thanks, Butch and Bob!
