Letter to the Editor: Rodney Liber

I was disgusted and appalled at the back-page advertisement by “doctor” Laura Schlessinger ( Daily Variety, Oct. 11). While I understand this is not part of your editorial content, I hope you will grant me the opportunity to comment on it.

As a conservative Jew and a member of the entertainment community, I was angered and embarrassed at Schlessinger’s attempt to associate Judaism with her defamatory statements about gays and lesbians. My father is a survivor of the holocaust and if I know one thing about modern Judaism in all its forms, it is that we are a religion that preaches tolerance.

Ms. Schlessinger, next time you attempt to rationalize your rhetoric, please leave (our) religion out of it!
