Yes, Shmuley Boteach is conservative (with a lower-case "c") and also a rabbi, but he is most certainly not a Conservative Rabbi!
I thought Colmes did a good job of questioning Ann Coulter about her controversial comments about Jews and Christians from her "Danny Deutsch Show" interview last month. Never one to miss an opportunity to say something outlandish, Coulter explained that she wears the criticism from Jewish groups like the ADL and the American Jewish Congress "as a badge of honor."
Rabbi Yehuda Levin, a spokesman for the Rabbinical Alliance for America and the Union of Orthodox Rabbis of the United States and Canada, came to Coulter's defense explaining that "She said nothing that in any way indicates anti-Semitism." Rabbi Levin's defense of Coulter was enough for her to claim the support of 1000 orthodox rabbis. Rabbi Yehuda Levin is the ultra-Orthodox rabbi who tried to ban the Gay Pride parade in Jerusalem. Rabbi Levin also has a website, Jews for Morality, that includes essays claiming that hurricane Katrina was God's Judgment on a sin-loving America.
Perhaps the only thing funnier that the phrase "conservative rabbi Shmuley Boteach" is the final exchange in the Coulter-Colmes interview. Even after watching the video of the interview (see below) it makes no sense. Just more ridiculousness from Ann Coulter. Oy!
ANN COULTER: How about eating soup? Is that a classic food of anti-Semites?
ALAN COLMES: Yeah, that's lovely, Ann. I'm going to move on in spite of yourself, and maybe save you from saying something else that's ridiculous.
