Is Paul McCartney Converting To Judaism?

He is, if the rumors are to be believed (hat tip: Jim):

"Now that really hurts!"

While no one would confuse “McCartney” as a Hebrew name, Sir Paul does seem to have a thing for nice Jewish girls. His first wife, Linda, was a member of the tribe, and apparently Macca had talked about converting after marrying her, but “never got around to it.” After a brief stint with shiksa Heather Mills, McCartney has once again fallen for a Jew, current MTA board member Nancy Shevell, whom he married last month. And this time, he’s being a real mensch.

National Enquirer is reporting that Macca, who was baptized as a Roman Catholic but was “admittedly never very devout,” promised Shevell that he’ll convert to Judaism, as she takes religion rather seriously. The two reportedly spent the night before their wedding at Yom Kippur services, and McCartney apparently told his friends he’ll be completing his conversion studies next year. Mazel tov, you crazy kids! Let’s hope Shevell doesn’t turn out to be a real Lady Meshugganah. Remember: All you need is l’chaim

Notice this is coming from the National Enquirer, which makes this slightly more reliable than the rumors Paris Hilton is converting to Islam.

But if this does turn out to be true, Paul’s going to need someone to hold his hand and Foreskin Man is going to have a new life-long enemy.

    I never get this kind of response from the mainstream media when I write them crank letters. And remember it was the National Enquirer that broke the story of John Edwards having an extramarital affair and fathering a child out of wedlock while running for president in 2008 and the story of Rush Limbaugh being addicted to Oxycotin in 2003. It’s not all space aliens and miraculous appearances of the face of Jesus in a Mexican tortillas, you know.

    No, he’s converting to Yom Kippur services followed by breakfast. Nothing Jewish here, except for more Jews who have abandoned their people, assuming Shevell is actually Jewish in the first place.

      Who keeps track of these things, anyway? Isn’t there a concept of “show business Jewish” at least? At any rate, I’m pretty sure you’re not the one who gets to decide these things. I like to think they’d at least go to Jackie Mason.

        Of course there’s a concept of “show business Jewish” but it’s as genuine as the late Sammy Davis Jr.’s glass eye.


        As for Jackie Mason, he decided long ago:

        “I know a temple that’s so reform that even the rabbi isn’t Jewish. There’s a sign outside that says ‘NO JEWS ALLOWED’. There’s another that says ‘CLOSED ON JEWISH HOLIDAYS’.”

        Signed and sealed.

          Well, ok, if you say so. But I think there’s strength in numbers, though. There are only about 12 million Jews in the whole world, which is just a rounding error when you try to count all the Chinese. Isn’t it better for Israel and Jews around the world to be more inclusive, not less? And if you are going to be so strict, shouldn’t you start enforcing a “no spit” rule for Jews?

            “For thou art a holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be His own treasure, out of all peoples that are upon the face of the earth. The LORD did not set His love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people–for ye were the fewest of all peoples– but because the LORD loved you, and because He would keep the oath which He swore unto your fathers, hath the LORD brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.”

    Dear Paul, We don’t need any more Obama supporting, Israel dividing, Pali sympathizing, self hating secular Jews. If that’s what you have in mind (and all indications point that way) just stay a Goy.
