Nah, I'd Say Reform is a Bit More Gay-Friendly

News Item: Glenn Beck compares Reform Judaism to "Radicalized Islam"

I've got my issues with the Reform movement, but this is pretty damn nutty, even by Beck standards. Because the main characteristics of Reform as I see them- social liberalism, non-fundamentalism, feminism, friendliness to gays and lesbians and, um, being Jewish- are about as far away from radical Islam as anything on earth.

There's a kernel of truth to Beck saying that Reform is in many ways "about politics," but in the ways they are they're on the opposite side of just about every issue in the world from radical Islam.
