ITS ALL FACEBOOKS FAULT!

A friend of mine was at a shuir and the Rabbi was being a total ignorant doofus, and he was talking about how facebook caused a Jewish girl to get engaged to an arab guy.


My friend was absolutely peeved by the accusation, and rightfully so.

The girl clearly didn't care who she was seeing, or who she was with. IF she did she would've stopped herself before anything occured in the relationship. Aside from that there are plenty of websites she coulda met this guy on, eharmony.com, match.com, myspace, or anything else.

These rabbi's need to get reality checks and stop blaming modern technology for their own brain-defects.

There is something VERY wrong in the frum world.

How does the rabbi know it happened?

Ichabod Chrain

I have no idea. Wasn't at the shuir, and got ticked off so I didn't even think to ask the girl. lol.

Jersey said...

It's like cell phones. Obviously, it's the cell phone's fault that he started talking to girls (or vice versa). It's not like he could have found girls any other way.

Jessica said...

The responsibility lies (lays?) with the person. They used facebook the way they wanted to. Facebook (or any other social networking website) is not to blame for people acting the way they want to act. And why does this rabbi assume it's his business to gossip about this girl's personal life?

Moshe said...

I'm with IC. Who says it's even true.
"Rabbi McCarthy, care to divulge the girl's name so we can look her up on FaceBook?"

I am dating myself ( not the shidduch kind) but anybody remember Flip Wilson alter ego Geraldine who ranted ' the devil made me do it"

Nikki Flores said...

And this was Facebook's fault because...?

what will "they" think of next? and to think, the reason i joined facbook was to have access to more frum singles events. i could be meeting arabs instead.darn.
give me a break. if someone meets and marries a goy from facebook, they would do this anyway. if you go to a grocery store you could meet an arab and possibly marry him. maybe there shoud be jewish only grocery stores.

frumskeptic said...

fsf- jewish only supermarkets are not that far off..

one of the caterers we spoke to was telling us how he was hired for a job to do a vort. He told the lady that he would bring certain salads, cookies, and coke.

The lady nodded and w/e.

So the caterer brought in coca-cola, and the father of either the bride/groom refuse to allow it to beserved bcause he only drank Heimishe drinks.

And well...Heimishe drink are over priced, but are sill not-as bad at the Jew stores, wait a bit, there will be a ban against secular supermarkets.

Moshe said...

Moron.
Heimishe drinks are disgusting. Imitation crap. Same for ketchup and mustard.
Jewish companies cut corners wherever possible and wherever not too.

Dagim frozen tilapia, some skin left on one side of the tail always. American company frozen tilapia, both sides clean.

frumskeptic said...

BIG time moron, no drinks at the vort!

lol

imagine how embarrasing that musta been for the machatunim!!!

lol

and yea, dagim tilapia is overpriced as well

Moshe said...

American company = Pride in quality
Jewish company = Pride in how much the owners managed to screw over their workers and customers

frumskeptic said...

so true. sooooo true.

jewish philosopher said...

So frumskeptic, I guess you're against gun control too. It's not the guns that kill, it the people that kill.

frumskeptic said...

yup. I'm against gun control. at the end of the day, the more gun control laws there are, the more the criminals end up the only ones with guns.

Moshe said...

Yes, guns don't kill people. Here's a list of other things that don't kill people: knives, pens, wire hangers, forks, frying pans, rat poison, other household chemicals, baseball bats, sewing needles, etc.

You see, the problem is that you don't know English. Inanimate objects can't kill people. Yes, people can accidentally shoot themselves. However, there are no guns that suddenly decide to turn on their owner for not taking them out to the shooting range this month.

jewish philosopher said...

How about legalizing heroin and cocaine? There must be something wrong with people if they want to abuse them.

Moshe said...

That's why I like Ron Paul. The only intelligent candidate. War on drugs = prohibition. Neither worked and both cost money and lives.
Legalize everything and tax it. Weed sold in stores. Hard stuff by prescription and use the money from taxing the stuff and the money being wasted now to help those who want to get off the stuff.

jewish philosopher said...

Sure, if you don't mind being robbed every day by junkies.

Moshe said...

Didn't know you're being robbed every day by alcoholics and smokers.

jewish philosopher said...

There is no place in the world where cocaine and heroin and legal. There are reasons why.

Sometimes you have to remove temptations from people. Everyone understands that. Same thing with Frum kids and Facebook.

Is there anything that frumskeptics does like about Jews, or is she a straight anti-Semite?

Moshe said...

Says the most well known jblogger anti-semite :-P

And stop changing the subject. I show that you're wrong and you repeatedly switch to something else. Act your age.

jewish philosopher said...

I changed the subject because you obviously know nothing about that subject.

Moshe said...

You haven't shown much, make that any, knowledge about any of the topics.
Alcohol actually causes the most deaths, yet it's legal. Don't see you saying anything about that.
You're like a parrot. You repeat everything that the liberal media tells you but are incapable of independent thinking.

So tell me o wise one. Why does crime rate drop in a city that loosens or lifts its gun controls, while in a city that makes gun controls worse, the crime rises. I'd get you the names of the cities but I'm too lazy to search for them. You can find the info on digg.com.

Ever heard of the Marijuana Tax Act? Why was Absinthe banned and why was the ban removed after 100 years? Why is Salvia legal in most of US? Why is nicotine, which is rated more addictive than heroine according to both the Henningfield and Benowitz indexes and is known to cause cancer legal while Marijuana, which is in 5th place, after alcohol and caffeine is illegal? Actually, for the answer, see the Marijuana Tax Act.

Temptation? I don't see any of these rabbis banning kids from smoking. More so, how many rabbis in yeshivas smoke in front of their students.

I quite a lot about the above subjects. You, on the other hand, know absolutely nothing.

Moshe said...

This is so fun. And, I'm educating all your other readers too. :-D

Moshe said...

Who said trolls are bad. This one has proven to be very entertaining. ;-)

kisarita said...

don't agree. people get sucked up into relationships much further than they intended. it happens all the time. pulling out is easier said than done.

frumskeptic said...

kisarita- Seriously, what's facebook have to do with the complications of leaving a relationship?
