Aside what I usually eat for breakfast when I’m home, I got a bonus course this morning. One of my favorite things: A contradiction to solve, a paradox to figure out, a square to circle.
How can the Jewish-dominated NYT approve of swimming pool sex segregation for Muslims but show disdain for it for Orthodox Jews? What’s the through line? Because anything you can think of offhand fails.
I think the common denominator is the religious group not mentioned here: Christians, especially conservative-evangelicals. That being the religious group that Jews in general and Jews at the NYT hate the most. They figure that importing Muslims helps stick it to the Christians, and they have a disdain for Orthodox Jews for various reasons, and one of which is that conservative-evangelical Christians and Orthodox Jews are political allies on occasion.
Paradox solved, before the orange juice.
