Trust the Ball

by Rabbi Rami ShapiroJanuary 14, 2012

Now that we have two GOP contests under our belt I turned to my trustworthy Magic 8-Ball to determine the future. Here is what I learned:
 
-Will Mitt Romney be the next President of the United States? Yes.
-Will anything really change? Very doubtful.
-Will the US go to war with Iran? You may rely on it.
-Will we pay for war by cutting the social safety net for the poor, sick, and elderly? Signs point to yes.
-Will Americans learn anything from our experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan? My sources say no.
-Will the economy improve in 2012? Outlook not so good.
-Are Mormons Christian? Better not tell you now.
 
The Ball is never wrong. Yet, like all prognosticators you can hire your own to get the results you want. If you don’t like these answers, buy your Ball and let us know what it tells you.

Rabbi Rami Shipiro

Author and teacher Rabbi Rami Shapiro will lead “Walking Without, Journeying Within”—a trip to the Holy Land with S&H in fall 2018.

Rabbi Rami Shapiro is an award-winning author, essayist, poet, and teacher. His spiritual advice column, "Roadside Assistance for the Spiritual Traveler," addresses reader questions pertaining to religion, spirituality, faith, family, God, social issues, and more.

His newest book is The World Wisdom Bible.

He has this to say about religion: "To me, religions are like languages: no language is true or false; all languages are of human origin; each language reflects and shapes the mindset of the civilization that speaks it; there are things you can say in one language that you cannot say or cannot say as well in another; and the more languages you know, the more nuanced your understanding of life. Judaism is my mother tongue, yet in matters of the spirit I strive to be multi-lingual. In the end, however, the deepest language of the soul is silence."
