    This may be because many Jewish sects consider Christianity a form of idolatry while two of the main Eastern religions (Islam and Buddhism) are not.

    The middle ages were a violent time and you are confusing to readily and too easily questions of temporal power and conquest and the tradition as a whole, very convenient if all your intent on doing is hating on Christianity itself. Well done.
    Some of your other posts are well thought out and intelligent. I even liked you. However, this stupid self absorbed crap is rude, inaccurate and doesn't represent most Christians attitude and point of view, nor most sane people's. Please, get a fucken grip and conduct yourself properly.

    Its not your love of the gospel Mathew that make people think you are anti-Semitic there is something else that my intuition red flagged earlier. Either that or you are a total overreactor and you need to check your Fi or take it easy on the drinking.

    Jews have been heavily persecuted as well as the Irish. If you can be Irish and not see this/sympathize then you got some major blind spots. Never understood the animosity of some "Christians" when the bible says the Jews are God's chosen people and notes Jesus was a Jew but then they start hating; always thought it was an F dom irrational response of the ignorant.

    Is it jealousy? Why the hate or animosity? Whats the fucken point of the thread in the first place of how a religious group whats to conduct its own right to associate/disassociate? Why am I even asking when I know how you will answer?
    I redact everything I have written or will write on this forum prior to, subsequent with and or after the fact of its writing. For entertainment purposes only and not to be taken seriously nor literally.

    Oh yeah, that's a pretty balanced and proportionate reply dont you think?

    I'm afraid I do see red on the continual running down of Christendom and Christianity, I'm unsure how or why anti-semitism comes into that, unless its anti-semitic to profess the views that Christianity is too often run down with continual references to its darkest hour and complete ommission of all its positive contributions to humankind.

    There's no jealousy, hate or animosity other than what you're projecting but sure, dont know why I answer rhetorical questions fielded for the benefit of friends in the gallery anyway...

    I hope so.

    Maybe its a European thing and its not like in America where if someone starts talking like this you know where they are really coming form.

    Consider trying the ardent atheists they love to talk shit about Christians and many seem to like this form of emotional discussion.

    Pointing out a fact of history is not "hating," it's knowing history.

    And I don't know what point you're attempting to make.

    Are you trying to say the Judaism would not exist without Christianity?
