You're A Hard Man To Please, George L. Metcalfe!



I always knew Burt Young was a mensch.

But he brought a tear to even these jaded eyes with his most recent letter to the Florida Bar News (his earlier one is here), in what has become a continuing George L. Metcalfe soapbox/soap opera played out in the letters page of what used to be a normal Bar publication:
Is not it Biblically accepted that (wo)man was created in the image of G-d? If G-d created His people with different sexual orientations, then who is Mr. Metcalfe and his ilk to question G-d’s wisdom? If his answer is that the literal translation of the Bible says it’s so, then how are all of the bizarre and inhumane contradictions of the Bible explained? They cannot.

Who in their right minds would accept and be bound as part of the civil law the literal Biblical interpretations? (I do not consider members of the Taliban as being in their right minds!)

In sum and in every respect, David has made both his late mom and me very proud parents.

And, I repeat, any law that would prohibit the likes of my son from adopting a child is an “ass.”
And not just the law either.

You know, I think Burt is channeling either Shakespeare or Mel Brooks above.

Let's go with Brooks and the Nazis, they're funnier -- scroll through to about 4:55 in to see what I mean.

  9. The author of southfloridalawyers.blogspot.com has written an excellent article. You have made your point and there is not much to argue about. It is like the following universal truth that you can not argue with: If a program is useful, it will have to be "improved". Thanks for the info.

  10. Perhaps the only thing more self-aggrandizing that posting a picture of oneself with an internationally famous attorney would be sending oneself “best regards” for taking said picture.
