I Am Not A Gentile

I am not a Gentile, nor am I a Jew. Why let others define who you are?

These are the words of Deputy Minister for Religious Affairs, Rabbi Eli Ben Dahan, from the settler party Habayit Hayehudi given during an interview for the Israeli daily Ma’ariv:

What will you do if the Knesset votes on a bill legalizing gay marriage?

No way. Also, a Jew cannot marry a gentile.

Is that the same thing?

We don’t recognize either of them. And anyway, a Jew always has a much higher soul than a gentile, even if he’s gay.
