THERE'S A NAME FOR A RABBI WHO DOESN'T BELIEVE IN GOD...:

Sherwin Wine, 79, Founder of Splinter Judaism Group, Dies (DENNIS HEVESI, 7/25/07, NY Times)

Rabbi Sherwin T. Wine, founder of a movement in Judaism that says there is no reason to believe in God but that the religion’s highest ethical traditions and the value of each person should be revered, died on Saturday in Essaouira, Morocco.

He was 79 and lived in Birmingham, Mich.

Rabbi Wine was killed in a car accident while on vacation with his companion, Richard McMains, said Rabbi Miriam Jerris, president of the Association of Humanistic Rabbis.

"Progressive" is the stealth word for "Communist." What is "humanist" the code word for?
