    his Baptist  Youth Minister (he went for sccial reasons; most of his class of 50 were members) made an anti-Semitic remark.

    Husband: Jesus was a Jew.

    YM: No, Jesus was a Baptist. He was baptized by John the Baptist.

    YM encouraged the Youth Group members to  ostracize my husband.  He dropped out a few weeks later.  He's been a Wiccan now for many years.

    The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.

      He was a Jew, too.  A lot of us still make regular trips to the mikveh.

      •  We know this--but this YM didn't. (0+ / 0-)

        The concept of Jesus as a Jew eludes anti-Semites--especially the Southern Baptist (Southern as in SBC but also as in GA) type.
