Recently, I have had to bear the bigotry of a relative during Easter Dinner. One of his gems was that Jews are “Christ-killers.” Lately I saw a cartoon showing the baby Jesus in the shadows of an Israeli tank and it reminded me of the incident with my relative. Baby Jesus is saying, “Oh no, will they kill me again?” I had to think about this for a while (I’m a little slow on the uptake) before I realized that this was not just a political cartoon whose opinion is that Israel is the agressor in recent events. It also brought up the idea that Jews killed Christ. I was appalled at this cartoon because whatever one believes about the problems in the Middle East, there is no reason to bring this up. It is unfair and arrogant. In retrospect, I am sorry that I did not confront the moron relative above. I could have asked him to prove that Jews killed Christ; in fact, just prove that Christ ever existed at all, a-hole. Plus, if Jesus Christ came down from heaven to DIE FOR THE SINS OF MANKIND, why would Jews killing him be a bad thing? Now, if they got in the way of his death, say by saving him from drowning or something, now that would be a cause to despise this group of people.
Oh, and one more thing, wasn’t Jesus Christ himself a Jew? Kind of ironic if you think about it. An anti-semitic s&*t-head who hates Jews but worships one of them as his God?
What it comes down to is the idea that what one does cannot be wrong while what another supposedly lower being does cannot be right. It is this same mentality that allowed so many unfortunate people to be lynched by self-righteous animals who, if there is a God, are being deep-fried to a crisp right now. Ironically, it is these people who crucify and lynch the innocent, all the while condemning others of being guilty of this or that.
Incidentally, I did not mean to offend any believers by making the point above that Jesus may not have really existed. If you believe, then it doesn’t matter what the hell I say. But when you are dealing with a shit-for-brains monkey, you have to hit him with all you got. I don’t care about blaspheming someone’s religion if he’s a bigoted snot. I would never do the same to someone who knows what respect and class is.
