Jew-Bashing

Posted by Rick · December 6th, 2003 · 2 Comments

I never cease to be amazed at jew-baiters. I suppose I should stop being surprised. And if they weren’t so doggone dangerous, I’d just ignore them. After all, even asking questions and voicing concerns is often enough to set off a new round of antisemitism.

Tonight, one did me the favor of posting a comment to my blog. To read it — and my response to it — you’ll need to return to a post I wrote in August about some controversy over Mel Gibson’s film, then called The Passion and now known as The Passion of Christ, which was then being filmed.

Feel free to take a look at my original post here. After the article are comments people have posted. Until now, my favorite comment had been one in that same post by “LadyLawyer” — it inspired its own article, by the way, which you can read here. Anyway, “R.C.” now holds the position. A more shining example of why some (not all: some) Jews get jumpy when people start talking about “Jews and Jesus” could not have been found.

In modern America, antisemitism seldom seems to me to wear so thin a veil.

On the other hand, after reading one of Vachon’s articles on Counterpunch, it appears he may just have taken one-too-many bad acid trips.

    i was baptised catholic – believed without question when i was a child – as children will. have since come to my own conclusions in regards to the man called jesus – if he did exist – was probably a good jewish man, but not the son of god. isn’t it amazing how we took the old testament from the jewish faith – enhanced writings from earlier scribes and produced our new testament. it there was such a man, he would have been horrified to find how his beliefs were so grossly distorted by gentiles – pagans for their own purpose. I am definetly aware how much killings took place in the past, due to the christian religion and it shames me, although a child does not choose their religion. I would never go the see the “movie” as it seems to be more of a dangerous crusade than a religious historical story. it will only give fuel to the idiots, the bigot groups etc.. how can christian bigots condemn jews, when their faith centers around a jewish son of god? I respect many old religions, however t is very hard for me to have any solid beliefs when so many people died are are still dying in the name of religion, there is so much to learn from each other, (race, beliefs and traditions), Will people ever change?!
