Bishop Blames Criticism on Zionists

The church of self-hating Jews?

Print Email

Hey Catholic Church! Are you guys, in your persecution, sorta kinda like the Jews? Or are you yourselves being persecuted at the hands of the Jews? (“They do not want the Church,” an Italian bishop said, saying the recent criticism over pedophilia cover-ups was a “Zionist attack.”) “They are its natural enemies. Deep down, historically speaking, the Jews are God killers.”

My theory is that the Church is both persecuted Jews and persecuted by Jews. That is, they are self-hating Jews. They are certainly self-hating.

Your little rant is incoherent.

we could all take a lesson from the Bahai faith .. this senseless “my religion is better than yours” “you killed my G-d so I’ll kill yours” and the petty arguments over pedophilia (there are plenty of rabbis also guilty [I have a list]as I’m sure there are imans, yogis, etc..) are ridiculous in this enlightened day and age. There are so many better things to talk about that would bring all the world closer together and I would like to see Tablet not go tabloid …
