Certain Christian fundamentalists aren’t the only ones offended by gays and lesbians. Rabbi David Dalin, visiting fellow at Catholic University’s law school and visiting associate professor at the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York, is out to prove that intolerance can be an ecumenical thing. And he’s not just anti-gay: Dalin, a frequent contributor to all manner of conservative publications, isn’t very happy about welfare programs or the lack of prayer in public schools, either. One can only imagine where he stands on Marilyn Manson. At Georgetown University tonight, Dalin will discuss and sign copies of his book The Presidents and the Jews. With any luck, during the question-and-answer portion of the evening, someone will get around to asking him about his signature on a statement (published in the religion magazine First Things in 1994) called “The Homosexual Movement.” Among the many interesting insights it offers is the idea that a “reflexive recoil” from homosexuality isn’t wrong; it’s “precisely the point of moral education of the young.” Check him outbut don’t forget to wear your “Gay BashingIt’s Not Just for Christians Anymore!” T-shirt. The event takes place at 7 p.m. at Georgetown University’s Bunn Intercultural Center, 37th and O Streets. NW. Free. (202) 662-9297. (Michael Little)
