Passover Roundup

The Huffington Post's "Religion" section is always very grateful when a holiday comes along, and they couldn't stop turning out the articles for Passover earlier this week. Huffington Post bloggers related the holiday to such progressive causes as self-improvement and women's rights. There was also the usual amounts of attacking Passover (not entirely undeserved) and news articles about President Obama's seder.

Naturally the trolls came out to play, conflating all Jews with Israel and whining about the chosen victims. The  women's rights article in particular a lot of nasty remarks if you'd like to read it for yourself at the link above.

(The author of the article this is in reply to is not a member of Knesset. She is a member of Congress. You interpret that however you like.)

Welcome to the Huffington Post.
