Closing a thread when the moderator has read neither the content or the Gospel from which the thread title came? Or the content of the article?

This is exactly the sort of hysterical knee jerk reaction I referred to in the article. A deliberate, ingrained fear of offending those Jews who have brow-beaten people into believing that to mention the word Jew is to cause offense.

Read the article, Michelle, and tell me if you don't see yourself.

Yes, but I have studied the Gospels for many years, and find your co-opting them for your political agenda most offensive.

I love the assumption that I haven't read the gospels.

I closed the thread because the subject line was offensive. I'm reading through it now to see whether the text of your posts is as offensive as your thread title.

Also, this thread belongs in rabble reactions. So I'm moving it there.
