[Rabbi William Handler]
Congressional candidate David Weprin labels himself a “Modern Orthodox” Jew.
But, is his Jewish religion really an important priority in his life? Does he really respect Jewish values? And is he prepared to sacrifice anything at all to defend those values? Probably not! When push comes to shove, when there is a conflict between the politically-correct values of Liberalism and the Torah values of the Jewish People, David Weprin is on the other side.
His real religion is Orthodox Liberalism. Every Jewish child knows that homosexuality is an abomination, condemned in the Torah. Yet, very recently, David Weprin saw fit to make a highly-publicized speech in the New York State Assembly in favor of “Gay Marriage.”
That’s why Assemblyman Dov Hikind is not supporting David Weprin. Not only did Weprin support the “Gay Marriage” bill in the NY State Assembly, but he brazenly marched in the annual “Gay Pride” parade down Fifth Avenue, waving a rainbow-colored homosexual flag, behind a huge banner proclaiming “Gay Pride.”
Mr. Weprin is entirely alienated from Jewish Torah values. His heart is just not in it. His real allegiance is to the left-wing radicals who have taken over today’s Democratic Party.
He supports abortion-on-demand, continued Federal funding for Planned Parenthood (the largest abortion provider in the U.S,), and Obamacare, which will destroy the Medicare system for the elderly.
He cannot be trusted to loyally represent the best interests of our Jewish community. Since David Weprin knows that Jews are leery of President Obama, he has declined to publicly commit himself to support Obama—“I’m running myself right now. On September 14, (after his congressional election is over on September 13) I’ll be happy to address the President’s election…Don’t read anything into it”—These are weasel words.
Quietly, however, his campaign aide confided to the Daily News: “Of course he’s going to support Obama.”—Of course he will!
Says NYC Councilman Daniel Dromm, who has known Weprin for years: “Politics is his life.”—Orthodox Liberal Democratic politics.
