A rabbi who disrespects history

The rabbi David Wolpe, of a Conservative Judaism synagogue in LA, has caused a controversy at the Sinai Temple, where a lot of the congregants are of Iranian descent, with his acceptance of gay marriage. But if there's something else that makes this pseudo-rabbi worthless besides his apparent contempt for Leviticus, it's what he thinks of Exodus:
This is not the first time that Rabbi Wolpe, 54, has attracted national attention for the views he has pressed on his congregation. In one noted sermon, he expressed doubt about one of the great stories of Jewish life, the exodus of Jews from Egypt into the wilderness.
Dear, dear. Any representative of Judaism that disrespectful of heritage can't be considered a true representative at all. No wonder he's so accepting of gay marraige beliefs, and the NYT's fawning over him to boot. Note also the part about "wilderness" which obfuscates Israel. Yes, it took at least 4 decades before entering Israel was approved, but still, that's pretty despicable of the paper to do that.

I've always believed in the Exodus myself. The deniers forget (or ignore) that even the Egyptians mentioned Israel frequently in texts (Armana tablets, Merneptah stele) and that there were Israelites in Egypt and they were depicted on the walls of ancient tombs. There's also the Ipuwer papyrus that records events very similar to those seen in the Exodus. To me, it definitely happened.
