Comments for entry I Object!
Actually I disagree with some of those words.
Religion wouldn't trap me,
I let my freedom ring.
Following the rules
Was not my thing.
This is not my view of Judaism. Judaism is not something that takes away freedom. On a deeper level it's all about freedom. Moses freed the slaves from the theocratic dictatorship. And he gave the people "rules" but many of those rules were to protect freedom. For instance, the Sabbath, the day of rest, is one of the greatest gifts the Jews gave to humanity. It put in stone the concept that at least one day of the week must be free. In fact, it is considered a sin to work! How cool is that?
I know the song is meant in fun, and it is funny, if a little geeky, but they could have come up with words that don't paint Judaism in such a misguided way.
