I am a long-time fan of the Mr. Deity YouTube series. If you aren’t familiar with this hysterical creation, here’s a great episode to start with. It’s called Mr. Deity and the Philosopher.
At this time of year, when Jews are pounding their chests and begging forgiveness, this is a humorous and honest look at how religious traditions determine and judge good and evil. Anyone who watches this is going to have a hard time walking into a mainstream synagogue on Yom Kippur and uttering the inanities of the traditional prayers.
Well, if Rosh Hashanah services were just too much for you and you’re dreading Yom Kippur, why not find a Humanistic congregation in your area? Here’s a link to a directory.
Why waste a whole day telling Mr. Deity how sorry YOU are? He’s such a schmuck.
