One of the things that friends of mine will probably find disturbing about my conversion - even though I'm converting Reform - is that many of the Hebrew scriptures can be seen as outdated, sexist, racist, etc. But in light of the shootings this weekend, an Orthodox friend of mine linked to this article on two verses of the male morning prayers and what they should mean today, and I think it's worth a read.
They could only been seen as outdated, sexist or racist if one didn't believe that G-d gave them.... otherwise if one does believe G-d gave them, and yet they are outdated - then anyway that person is bigger than G-d so what does he need Him for??
