Rabbi Shmuley’s Live Chat regarding The Michael Jackson Tapes

Rabbi Shmuley Boteach was online with WashingtonPost.com readers on Friday, Oct. 2, at 1 p.m. ET to
discuss his book, The Michael Jackson Tapes, which is an account of his
recorded conversations with the pop star as his spiritual advisor that
took place in 2000 and 2001 and explore Jackson’s feelings about fame,
family and relationships. In addition, Boteach will address the latest
news about the leaked L.A. coroner’s autopsy report which states that
Jackson was a “fairly healthy” 50-year-old before he died of an
overdose.

Jimmy Carter’s Price Tag

You’ve
got to admire Jimmy Carter. No matter how wrong he is, no matter how
many times he is refuted, no matter how inane his ramblings, he just
keeps on coming back for more. Forget the fact that he was eviscerated
in a landslide election where the American people overwhelmingly voted
to shoo him from the presidency. And forget the fact that historians
and the public rate him as arguably the worst president of all time.
Carter doesn’t seem to have gotten the message. We’re stuck with him
forever. He just won’t go away.

The Destructive Deification of Michael Jackson

Publishing my new book, The Michael Jackson Tapes: A Tragic Icon
Reveals His Soul in Intimate Conversation, has been a fascinating and
at times painful education in the need for Michael’s most diehard fans
to deify him. The book is out only three days. But even as the book
and the Dateline NBC special highlighting the conversations has been
met with international acclaim, near-universal praise, and instantly
entered the best-seller lists, that hasn’t stopped a Tsunami of angry
messages from Michael’s most fanatical fans on their message boards, 
some laced unfortunately with anti-Semitism and even threats of
violence. Their complaint: how dare I call Michael ‘tragic.’ How dare
I not declare unequivocally that he never molested a child. Most of
all, how dare I publish any book that does not completely extol their
fallen deity.

Would Hilary Rosen Have Criticized Stay-at-Home Dads as Never Having Worked?
It's good that Hilary Rosen apologized for her comments that Ann Romney, who chose to be a stay-at-home mom to raise her five boys, had 'never worked a day in her life.' It took a day for Rosen to finally acknowledge that her comments were unhelpful, but she finally said, "I apologize to Ann Romney

Jews Must Demand Relationship of Equality with Christians
No Holds Barred: It is high time that our warm allies in the Mormon Church cease the posthumous baptizing of any and all Jews. My much-publicized dispute with Canadian TV host Michael Coren last week taught me valuable lessons about the Jewish community and the new relationship with our Christian
