BROOKLYN, NY, February 2, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - On the eve of Super Tuesday, the oldest Orthodox Jewish Rabbinic organization in the country has issued a historic declaration.

Rabbi Yehuda Levin, spokesman for the Union of Orthodox Rabbis of the U.S. and Canada, issued the following statement:

"It is very important for our community to demonstrate its appreciation for our wonderful country by exercising our civic obligation to vote. However, it is even more important that we do not support any candidate whose position is in any way antithetical to our Torah based morality. Candidates who support abortion on demand, the homosexual agenda, liberal attitudes towards pornography of any sort - are antithetical to our way of life and it is forbidden to support or vote for them.


The Catholic Church should follow suit, too many Catholics these days are ignorant of the ongoing Culture War.
Thank God, it’s good to see real Jews again… as opposed to the enemies of God as described in Exodus:
Exodus 32:26 then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, “Whoever is for the LORD, come to me!” And all the sons of Levi gathered together to him.
Seems to me the Jews need to repeat this.
