Gay Rabbi on Two Truths

In an interview with Sharon Kleinbaum, the rabbi of Congregation Beit Simchat Torah (CBST), I spotted this:

“I happen to be someone who can hold two truths at once,” she responds

which, of course, sent me to Uri Tzvi Greenberg's poem with these lines:

And I say: There is one truth and not two.As there is one sun and as there are not two Jerusalems.It was written in the Law of Conquest of Moses and JoshuaUntil the last of my kings and my traitors have consumed.And there will be a day when from the river of Egypt until the EuphratesAnd from the sea until the mountain passes of Moav my boys will go upAnd they will call my enemies and my haters to the last battle.And the blood will decide: Who is the only ruler here.
