Maccabees and “Motherfuckers”

A bunch of you have recently sent me Christopher Hitchens’ Hanukkah smackdown in Slate, “Bah, Hanukkah,” rightfully thinking that I would pretty much agree with him that this holiday is in its roots just a pageant to horrible things.  Thank you, and — agreed.

But even Hitchens, the king contrarian himself, can be on the receiving end of contrarianism.  For that, check out the always illuminating Daniel Radosh’s response, “Bah, Hitchens.

Or if, because it’s Friday, you’re not so much into the reading thing and kind of just want to look at pictures, take a look at my friend Eli Valley’s latest cartoon in Jewcy, from which the title of this blog post derived.

UPDATE: Kindly linking to this post, TAPPED, the group blog of The American Prospect, brings up the possibility that maybe the real miracle of Hanukkah was the defeat of “the homosexual agenda.”
