    How the joke about the pope and the top rabbi could be considered offensive, funny or evoke any emotions from either Jews or Catholics or anybody else is beyond my comprehension. The joke is beyond lame and does not make any sense at all. Ok Top Rabbi, Pope, money owed;
    ha ha ha! I get it now.

    •  It's probably to your credit (3+ / 0-)

      that you don't recognize that the joke is based on an offensive ethnic stereotype. (Actually a couple.) That doesn't stop it from being based offensive ethnic stereotypes.

    •  There is some humor in the joke, but surely not (1+ / 0-)

      what the teller intended.  One, the very idea of Jews ever uniting to follow one rabbi is an logical impossibility -- we just don't work that way.  Two, Christianity owes Judaism a larger debt than will likely ever be acknowledged -- they borrowed from us both their core beliefs and their man-god.  The teller of a joke like that one is poking fun of himself without realizing it.
