    The Rabbi is a religious man, a spiritual leader whom I would assume is learned in the Torah, Talmud, etc. He's not necessarily a "stupido", but somebody who follows what's in the Torah. He's not stoning anybody, or hanging anybody for homosexuality. He might think that the story of Sodom/Gemorrah exhibits a lifestyle that ate at the morality of those cities. He's entitled to his belief, just as the secularists have theirs. I know that secularists and Leftists are all a-tizzy with their "new" ideas of morality, but they're just rehashes of old behaviors. I live in SF and have to observe naked people in the streets for "Gay Pride"; people in leather and chains, women performing sexual gestures in the street-is this morally good? I would hope Israel would not fall to this level. Cut the Rabbi some slack.
