Now on to the matter at hand.
I just got a text urging me to vote for Fetterman. Of course I’ll be doing that, I’ve met and talked with the guy. I have friends who interacted with him in his mayoral role. I’m urging my friends to vote Shapiro, Fetterman. He reminds me of pre-presidential Obama. He’s that great of a guy.
But (there’s always a but), the text came from
Now, my mother was jewish, my dad was P….(rotestant or resbyterian, I forget). We had a xmas tree and Santa brought gifts. My mom lit her Hanukkah candles. I was atheist at birth and remain so. I’ve been in synagogues a handful of times, but I’ve also been in churches, mosques, meeting houses, temples, etc just out of curiosity.
I have no problem with my voter registration being a matter of public record, but it bothers me on some level that someone has somehow accessed information about my history. I’ve never registered as a particular religion. I have tattoos, but none are numbers.
Coincidence? The tone of the text seemed to be “from one Jew to another”. And yet overall I’m thrilled someone is spending time sending these texts!!
If any of this offends anyone, my apologies. Placing it in the pit so you can yell at me (but please don’t, I’m honestly weirded out/curious but I also realize it might be a touchy subject, and as the disclaimer mentioned, I’m medicated). But pre apologies.
