    Judaism has evolved, just as secularism has. Not 70 years ago the most eminent mainstream scientists, world leaders and intellectuals endorsed eugenics and racism as necessary for human progress. While the explosion of science and democratic philosophies began to flourish by the late 1700s, everyone who wasn't a white (Western European) male was seen as biologically and morally inferior. The battle began to be won in the 1960s and it's STILL not over. And your post reveals no knowledge of the pro-human rights morals that Judaism HAS given the world. So give us a break and stop being an apologist for a "rabbi" who was nothing more than a psychopathic bully.
