Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Marriage Cop

Does Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz approve of your marriage? It may depend upon the religion of you and your spouse!

“At an annual Jewish community event in my congressional district, I spoke about my personal connection to Judaism and in a larger context about the loss of Jewish identity and the importance of connecting younger generations to the institutions and values that make up our community. I do not oppose intermarriage; in fact, members of my family, including my husband, are a product of it,” the Florida Democrat said in a statement.

The conservative Daily Caller recently reported that Wasserman Schultz criticized Jewish intermarriages at an event last month in Florida.

“We have the problem of assimilation. We have the problem of intermarriage,” Wasserman Schultz reportedly said, per the Daily Caller. “We have the problem that too many generations of Jews don’t realize the importance of our institutions strengthening our community — particularly with the rise of anti-Semitism and global intolerance, which obviously we saw in horrific technicolor in just the last week in Paris.”

You can hear Wasserman Schultz’s comment about “the problem of intermarriage” here.

Remember, if you follow Leviticus 18:22 and that drives your opposition to gay marriage, you’re a terrible, horrible homophobe and bigot. But if you’re opposed to intermarriage of Jews and non-Jews on grounds of “lost identity,” it’s completely cool!
