This is what religion does: it institutionalizes and rationalizes stupidity, like these signs in New York neighborhoods.
The large signs started popping up in the neighborhood more than a week ago. They had a Yiddish message that translates as: “Precious Jewish daughter, please move to the side when a man approaches.”
Neighborhood residents were annoyed the plastic signs, which were bolted into the wood, were taken away.
“The signs don’t bother anybody,” said Abraham Klein, 18. “Men and ladies don’t go together. It’s just our religion.”
Yeah? Well, your religion sucks. And the signs bother me.
Orthodoxy and misogyny seem to go together like a bad sandwich: shit and slime, two awful flavors that taste worse together and don’t stand alone so well, either.
