I woke up this morning to find that a certain anonymous person took advantage of the Lag BaOmer holiday and tossed a book into the fire. It wasn’t just any book, and he photographed the whole thing and sent these pictures to a well known blogger. He burned DovBears book.
While I may not always agree with DovBear, he has a right to his opinion. Through him I have learned many things and made more contacts and friends. It is this kind of disgusting and hateful behaviour that caused Rabbi Akiva to lose thousands and thousands of students.
In today’s day and age we have the right to free speech. DovBear’s book is a Torah book – his insights to the parsha – How on earth can anyone justify burning such a book?? And to be so proud as to take pictures?
I am roiling boiling mad right now. I refuse to post a link to that blog that shows the pictures and I hope the blogger has the good sense to take them down and give no more credence to this shameful act.
DovBear – Rock On Dude. Keep on doing what you are doing. Don’t let the actions of one insane soul get to you. I, and other fellow bloggers and friends, have got your back!
