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.
