Recently, Rabbi Sacks was roundly condemned by diverse Jewish leaders in the U.K. for his unnecessary condemnation of civil marriage for gays and lesbians. I listened with sadness to Rabbi Sack's wise reminders that the bible tells us 36 times to 'love the stranger' and that change occurs 'only when we can feel the pain of the other' (his insight). Despite his verbal eloquence, Rabbi Sacks seems unable to walk his talk and demonstrate true, deep and meaningful dignity towards difference.
